A nice respite if the day isn't too hot

This is a nicely maintained garden in a beautiful setting. If the day isn't broiling it is very enjoyable and relaxing.

We visited the gardens with our son, his wife and their 5 year old son and everyone enjoyed the zen like atmosphere of the gardens. Located in the busy Plaza Italia in the middle of Buenos Aires, one easily escapes the stress and noise of a busy city. It is esthetically beautiful and relaxing. There are many snack bars and...

I will admit that visiting Japanese gardens is a favourite activity of mine and this was no different - not the most stunning Japanese garden in the world but a very pleasurable walk around on a hot day. Lots of great opportunities to take photos.

I had to visit at least one garden here ,so after our visit to the cemetary ,a garden seemed like a good stop. We caught a cab here from Recoletta,good plan as it was much further than it looked on the map. The garden is small but at 40 years old it has some wonderful trees offering a welcome shade... More

It's not a particularly unique Japanese garden. If you're looking for pretty scenery and you're already in the area it's not a bad place to while an hour away. But I wouldn't make a special trip here. It's $95 pesos to enter and I found the grounds noisy and overrun with people. I would, however, recommend the city botanical gardens,... More

This was a real find in the middle of BA- the entrance is not very inspiring but on a sunny day go and stroll around.

We landed in Buenos Aires early morning after a 13-hour flight from Europe and spent the morning walking around the city's parks waiting to check in at our hotel. By lunchtime we were exhausted and came across the Japanese gardens. What a wonderful place to relax, recharge batteries and enjoy the peaceful atmosphere that's been created in such a busy,...

Visited these beautiful, tranquil gardens with their small lakes and bridges, dozens of huge Koi carp and pathways and benches to stroll and rest on. Take a book and just relax in the quiet surroundings. There is also a good restaurant serving (mainly) Sushi - however, the menus are ONLY in Spanish and the staff don't speak much English at...

Staying in Palermo

Neighbourhood Profile
Palermo
Best known as the largest neighbourhood in Buenos Aires, Palermo is divided into different quarters, each with its own unique identity. The high-end quarter is Palermo Chico, characterized by magnificent mansions, regal avenues, and exclusive apartment buildings, and home to the Museum of Latin American Art of Buenos Aires (MALBA), a favourite amongst locals. The largest park in the city, the Bosques de Palermo, is Palermo's most famous landmark and a popular destination for nature walks, picnics, rollerblading, and cycling. The scene becomes much trendier in Palermo Soho, a hip area known for its cool cafés and unique design stores, filled with shoppers on weekends; and Palermo Hollywood, renowned for the numerous restaurants, bars and nightclubs, which make it the preferred spot for nights out and special occasions.
