Summer’s disappearing
and the temperature is falling but there are some gorgeous sunny days, and it’s
the perfect time to get outdoors and have some fun in one of BA’s parks. In
every neighborhood you’ll find a plaza, often with a playground and some grass.
Some are better than others for kids and families – here are a few of our favorites.

1) Bosques de Palermo

Probably
the best known and certainly the most expansive park in Buenos Aires, Bosques de Palermo is a large green
space in the heart of the city offering something for kids of all ages. Palermo’s
park, also known as Parque Tres de
Febrero
, has lakes, landscaped gardens, and a walking path that is closed
to traffic on weekends and always full of kids on bikes and roller blades,
joggers, and cyclists. The Rosedal is
a rose garden with hundreds of varieties of flowers, and you can also take a
boat out on the lake. Great for letting off steam at the weekend although it is
always full of people.

2) Parque Centenario

This large circular space is full of families chilling out on the weekend, kicking back on a blanket with a mate and watching the kids play on the grass. Parque Centenario in Caballito (find it between Avenida Suárez and Brandsen) is an excellent place for kids to play, with a variety of slides, climbing frames, play equipment and the ubiquitous carousel and ball pool. The center of the park has a lake and there are often organized events like painting, art, and crafts for children on Sundays.

3) Barrancas de Belgrano

A network of paths under shady trees makes this Belgrano open space perfect for strolling with a buggy. Older kids can run around on the grass and there could be an open air milonga taking place in the bandstand to catch their attention. This park is tucked away in the center of leafy Belgrano, on the corner of La Pampa and Arribeña. A good place for a picnic or for a game of football with the family.

4) Parque Las Heras

Parque Las Heras is on Las Heras and Cnel Diaz in Palermo, a short hop from the Bosques. Here you’ll find a playground and plenty of space under the trees to run around, play ball, and make friends with the other kids.

5) Plaza Armenia

Located on Armenia between Costa Rica and Nicaragua in Palermo Soho, this little park has plenty going on at the weekends and you’re sure to see dancers, musicians, clowns and other performers. There’s also a cute carousel and a playground with enough swings and slides to keep the little ones happy.

6) Plaza Castelli

Located on Conde and Juramento in Belgrano, this little gem of a playground is full of climbing frames, swings, slides – and sand. Always busy on the weekends but it’s a great place for little kids to have fun.
