This is the lungs of Buenos Aires and where people go jogging and biking. This is where you go when you want to be ourçtdoors but still in the middle of the city.
On Saturdays and Sundays, there are sports and music and plenty of activities -you can rent little boats- so that people go with their families for a picnic by the lake, under the sun.
Theres the Sivori museum and the Planetario right in these parks, so u can visit those too.
This area is also called "Palermo Lakes", the main lake being in the "Parque Tres de Febrero".
Location: In between the Avenidas Sarmiento, Del Libertador y Figueroa Alcorta
If you feel tired of the city and want to see a green space, then Los Bosques de Palermo is a good place. They are located 15 minutes away from downtown and they get packed with locals, mostly at the weekends, who go there to jog, cycle, rollerblade, play football or just sit on the grass and have a picnic. It's a good place to combine chilling out with local people watch. There are free aerobics lessons at the weekends.
Make sure you don't go there at night, as it becomes a Red District. Well... maybe you DO want to go! ;) Honestly, it gets rather dangerous at night.
Here, on the grounds of what has become the Biblioteca Nacional, is a monument facing the busy Avenida del Libertador commemorating Eva Duarte Peron. Between 1943 and 1955, Juan Peron had his residence here – Evita dying here 26 July 1952. The house was razed by his successors, but what comes around goes around and Evita is back. The monument is also unique in that the grafitti splashed over so many other statues is absent here.

This nice walk is between the planetarium and the palermo lakes, you could start the walk in one end and finish in the other, why not?
Beautiful lake in the middle of the city where you can walk and drink mate at its side.
It´s placed in Palermo, you can go ther from the city centre with buses, maybe from Recoleta. For example, line number 130. (The picture is maybe to beautiful)
