With 350 acres, the ecological reserve is the biggest green space in the city of Buenos Aires. Many people come to this place to walk, jogging, bike ride or have a day in the park. The reserve has many paths you can walk and many of them will take you to the riverbank.
You could see many native bird species and vegetation.
The ecological reserve is located very close to Puerto Madero and we recommend to walk it on good weather since the park has gravel roads.
In 1986 the area was declared as an ecological reserve. The reserve entrance is free and is located between Puerto Madero and Rio de la Plata. It has two access, one at the Brasil street and the other at Viamonte. The visit hours at summer are from 8 am to 7 pm and in winter from 8 am to 6 pm. All Monday is closed, except on holidays.
