Parque Tres de Febrero

The city's biggest and most popular park, with a rose garden and lake

The huge Tres de Febrero Park, also known as Los bosques de Palermo (The Forests of Palermo), is one of the city's most popular open spaces. It's the perfect place to relax and unwind, walk, run, cycle, rollerskate, or have a picnic with friends.

The park includes a lake and the Rosedal de Palermo, a rose garden with more than 8,000 roses and 93 different species. The rose garden has an Andalucian patio donated by the Spanish city of Seville to the city of Buenos Aires in 1929, and a poets' garden where you can find the busts of various literary figures, from Dante Alighieri to Buenos Aires' own Jorge Luis Borges. 

The rose garden is open Tuesday-Sunday, from 8am to 6pm in winter, and until 8pm in summer.


Opened in 1875, the The Tres de Febrero Park was named after the date of a decisive battle in the Argentine and Uruguayan civil wars (the Battle of Caseros on the third of February 1852). This battle led to the defeat and exile of Argentine president Juan Manuel de Rosas, whose lands were confiscated by the state and used to create the park.
