Parque de los Niños

Family-friendly park with a great view of the De la Plata river

Located on the riverside at the extreme northeast of the city, the 32-hectare Children’s Park offers privileged views of the Rio de la Plata, and plenty of space for kids to run about.

There are sandpits, children’s playthings and kites for hire - the wind from the river makes kite flying a popular activity.

The park is home to a wide range of native birds, and has picnic tables and several cycle lanes.

There are kiosks and public toilets.

Buenos Aires Beach

During the summer months (January and February), the park is given a makeover and transformed into a beach, complete with sand, parasols, sun loungers, showers, and activities such as beach volleyball. There’s free wifi connection too.
