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.
