Parque Centenario is a beautiful park located just some blocks away from the Cid Campeador statue (geographical center of Buenos Aires City). If you want to enjoy the green and spend a relaxed time, go during weekdays and avoid the evenings. If you like crowds, go during the weekend when you have an artisans fair. Old&new books fair works daily... More

It's a very nice park located in a place very accesible to the public. Good place to read a book or chat with friends. It has a lake full of huge colorful fishes and on weekends people sell handmade products throughout the day in a market inside the park.

It's a huge and beautiful park with lakes populated with ducks, swans and colorful fish; fitness stations to work out and lots of activities to do. Ideal to spend a day at the park or to go for either a morning or night run/walk. The mile-long perimeter is a very popular joggers' route. 5 stars.

There is a beautiful amphitheater where shows are offered for free. The museum of natural science is near by where dinosaurs are the great attraction. There is a book... More

Avoid it by night. There is no police presence, so I wouldn't risk it. Don't go!
