In the center of the city, this park has on its western side a second hand book market. Visit it on a weekend.

This is an excellent option to spend some time on a sunny day at Caballito neighbourhood. It's location is Rivadavia Av 4900. There is an interesting fair of old books and magazines, a carroussel and games for kids. It has also wonderful trees and in the centre of the park it is the monument of Simon Bolivar. Enjoy !
