The Basics

Visitors come to the Palermo Woods to walk or cycle along the lakeside trails, rent a paddle boat to cruise around Lake Rosedal (Lago del Rosedal), visit the Japanese Garden, and stroll around the central Rose Garden (El Rosedal), home to thousands of colorful rose bushes. As well as being a popular recreation area and picnic spot for locals, the park is often included on sightseeing tours of Buenos Aires’ Palermo neighborhood, as well as bike tours of the city.

When to Get There

The park is open year-round, and while it can get busy on summer afternoons, it’s big enough that you’ll always be able to find a quiet spot. It’s worth returning at different times of the year to admire the seasonal flora—the rose gardens are in full bloom in springtime (October–November), and the yellow tipas and purple jacaranda trees flower at this time, too. In fall (April–June), the autumn leaves make for some stunning photos.
