Parque LezamaApprox. Time: 1 hours
Activity Level: Easy to Moderate

One of the city's most attractive spots, Parque Lezama surrounds visitors with its natural beauty. Enormous magnolias, palms and cedar elms abound along the hilly trails as a smoothly-flowing river runs through the center. The land, which was once associated with slavery, was bought by Gregorio de Lezama early in the 20th century to use as a summer home. His wife, a plant lover, collected samples from around the world and planted them here, where they have preserved well over the years. The area was later bought by the Municipality of Buenos Aires and turned into a park. Saturdays, Sundays, and national holidays from 11am-6pm, the park is an exciting place to visit as there is the Feria Artesanal Urbana where different crafts can be found such as bijou and leather goods, such as belts and handbags.
