The Buenos Aires Japanese Gardens is a unique place in Buenos Aires (actually I get the impression that everything in Buenos Aires is unique). It is a private garden (entry fee is 50 pesos) that will transport you all the way to Japan. It is without a doubt the most beautiful Japanese garden I've seen outside of Japan. In the center is a lake with an island which you can access by a traditional Japanese bridge and there are trees, paths, and a teahouse where they offer green tea and dorayaki served in the traditional way by a staff dressed in kimonos and yukatas. I think they also hold tea ceremonies here sometimes. In addition, there's a little souvenir shop and a nursery. As well as being a garden, it also has the role of a kind of cultural center where all kinds of activities related to Japan take place. And if that wasn't enough, there's even a Japanese restaurant! If you've been to Japan and want a little reminder of what it was like, or if you're just interested in Japanese culture, it's the perfect place to visit.
Ka Cañada is a creek that runs through the heart of the city and is channeled with stones and surrounded by an avenue with characteristic things of the zone. It is very nice given that spring is starting and it is a fantastic landscape to enjoy!
San Martin Park is the largest park in the city, and has several acres where one can go to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city and enjoy the zoo, many beautiful streets filled with rees, extensive landscaping, lagoon, rowing school and much more...
The Buenos Aires Botanical Garden occupies 7 acres between the noisy avenues of Santa Fe and Las Heras, in the heart of Palermo. This is your chance to escape from the hustle and bustle of the city and enjoy some peace and quiet, admiring the design that was made 100 years ago by one of the greatest Argentinian landscapers, Carlos Thays. Within the garden you'll find species of plants from Asia, Africa, Oceania, Europe and America, but what truly stands out is the flora from the Argentina provinces, with 3 styles of garden (French, Roman and Japanese) and 5 wonderful iron-framed greenhouses. A beautiful place to go to get away from the city.
A charming city, full of both tranquility and life ... calmer than any other I saw in Latin America. The best part has to be the parks, and my particular favourite was the San Martin Park. It was dedicated to the memory of the Argentines who died fighting for independence. A wonderful place to go to relax.
Many years ago this was a beautiful park. Today it no longer is and even worse, it has become a dangerous place for the presence of hobos, scooters, motorcycles and quad bikes, holes, broken sidewalks, stray dogs,a mosquito generating lake, and poor people in general. Many of the trees are sick and the few planted are destroyed by playing football. A true tragedy of civil apathy of the Tucumanos
Actually, what's even more interesting than the villa (Villa General Belgrano), is the town and the Cumbrecita. These gorgeous flowers bloom at this time of year and climb all the way up to the stones (I'm not exaggerating). As a flower I honestly don't know much about it, I mean, almost nothing, I refer only to photograph and, in this case, to publish them so that those who can not go to the place, and enjoy.
