Parque Centenario

Popular neighbourhood park, and geographical centre of Buenos Aires City.

Present in tours

Located in the neighbourhood of Caballito (between Av. Angel Gallardo and Río de Janeiro) and another design of the ubiquitous Carlos Thays, the circular-shaped Parque Centenario (12 hectares) is a hub for joggers and exercisers. It contains outdoor gym equipment, a special consultation and exercise point for older persons, a lake, skatepark and 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. Its agenda can be found on the City’s Cultural Agenda.

Located along its extensive perimeters 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, 8pm to 10pm in summer.
