Parque de la Ciudad

Former theme park, now one of the city's biggest public parks.

The Parque de la Ciudad is one of the largest parks in BA, covering 75 hectares. Located in the southern neighbourhood of Villa Lugano (on Av. Cruz as it intersects with Av. Escalada), it contains wooded areas with over 200 native tree species, a number of lakes and a variety of wildlife, plus a public library, amphitheatre for big events (such as the free Ciudad del Rock concerts), and various murals and sculptures. At one point the park was home to an amusement park with various rides and rollercoasters, and the abandoned remains of many of the rides are still in place.

One of the park’s major attractions is the Space Tower (Torre Espacial), which offers a fantastic panorama of the city at 176 metres up. The tower is open on Saturday, Sundays and public holidays from 10.30am to 5pm, and costs AR $32 (adult tariff).

The Parque de la Ciudad is open daily, from 10.30am to 6pm, with an entry fee of AR $5.
