Bosques de Palermo (Buenos Aires)

Bosques de Palermo (Buenos Aires) – a.k.a. “Parque Tres de Febrero”, this 400 hectare park is located in the Palermo district of Buenos Aires, and is considered the city’s version of New York’s Central Park.  Designed with the help of prominent French landscape designer Carlos Thays, the park was first inaugurated in 1875 and has since provided porteños a place to exercise, relax, picnic, and play for over a century.  Since there’s a lake on the premises, visitors can rent a pedal boat to enjoy the time there.  Others rollerblade, go bicycling and even play street hockey.  For stargazers, there’s also a planetarium within the park’s grounds (Galileo Galilei Planetarium).
