Reserva Ecológica de Buenos Aires
Sunday in Buenos Aires can be boring. More than a usual day. If that’s possible. This afternoon I ventured over to Reserva Ecológica de Buenos Aires and walked for almost three hours. The reserve was declared a national park on Earth Day in 1986 and is popular with bird watchers, with over six species of parrots (incentive much!?) calling it home. A former dumping ground, and covering 360-hectares it is also popular with runners, walkers, sunbathers and cyclists.
The ecological reserve is open to visitors from Tuesday to Sunday with guided tours available on weekends. It’s a nice break from the hustle and bustle of the city centre and a short walk from the trendy Puerto Madero barrio.
Check it out if you get a chance.
