Parque Centenario

Popular neighbourhood park, and geographical centre of the city.


Espacios verdes, Qué hacer,

Located in the neighbourhood of Caballito and another design of the ubiquitous Carlos Thays, the circular-shaped Parque Centenario (12 hectares) is a popular hub for joggers and exercisers. The place gets packed at weekends with everything from tai-chi and yoga classses to children's activities, and plenty of mate drinking. There's a  special consultation and exercise point for older persons, a lake, skatepark, and a football pitch.

On its grounds are the Bernardino Rivadavia Argentine Museum of Natural Sciences (open daily 2pm-7pm), and the Eva Peron Amphitheatre, which hosts festivals and spectacles all year round. The agenda can be found at DisfrutemosBA.

Around the park's extensive perimeter rings, you’ll find a daily book fair, and on Saturdays and Sundays a much more extensive neighbourhood arts, crafts and clothes market - an off-the-beaten track alternative for city visitors and bargain hunters.

The park is open daily, from 8am to 8pm in winter and 8am to 10pm in summer.
