Parques Tres de Febrero a.k.a. Bosques de Palermo (Palermo Woods)
As an avid runner what better place is there to hit the pavement than Parque Tres de Febrero — also known as Bosques de Palermo (Palermo Woods) — in the Buenos Aires barrio of Palermo? Okay the answer to this question is obviously rhetorical, because there is no better place.
Summer in Argentina is humid, unlike anything this Canadian has ever experienced, and I have to be more cautious running outside in the scorching temperatures. I rose early this morning before it got too hot and made my way over to the park for a run.
Known for its groves, lakes and famous Rose Garden, Parque Tres de Febrero is insanely busy on the weekends, and virtually dead during the weekdays. However, it was more bearable this morning than usual as Porteños escape the city during the summer weekends for greener pastures.
You can spend hours just sitting and people watching, and for a gay man, there’s plenty of eye candy.
Bosques de Palermo is a city park of 62 acres with boat rides available on three artificial lakes. For now though, I’ve only explored the park on foot.
Well, here are some of the photos I took.
