Park 3 de Febrero
Stroll Hand in Hand Through Parks and Gardens
When the city gets too hectic, retreat to one of Buenos Aires’ loveliest parks or gardens for a walk, a picnic, or a siesta under the trees. The sprawling Bosques de Palermo (Palermo Woods) offers a lovely rose garden and a picturesque lake with paddleboats, while in the south of the city, the Reserva Ecologica has bike paths along the Rio de la Plata. The Jardín Japonés (Japanese garden) is a small and wonderfully romantic spot in Palermo for admiring bonsai and sipping tea; come at night to dine on sushi while looking out at the illuminated gardens.
