Must see · Park · Nature / Park
Besides refuge for animals, Parque Barigui is also a natural preservation area within the city limits that offers many activities and opportunities to connect with the locals. You and your family can stay active with amenities including fitness equipment, paddle boats, playing fields, trails, skating rink, and a BMX track. An onsite bistro serves lunch and dinner, or you can cook your own food at one of the park's grills. The native forest surrounding the lake (formed by a dam) is rich in flora and fauna, like orchids and 200 species of birds.

As you approach the lake, you may catch a glimpse of the Barigüi alligator who sunbathes on the lake's shore--but there's no need to worry because this reptile has never bothered any visitors during its lifetime in the park. The grounds provide a home for the Automobile Museum, a Steam Train Station, an exhibition park, an amusement park, and a helipad where you can charter a lift in a helicopter.

  • We chose the neighborhood due to the proximity to the park, so we could enjoy a feeling of having somewhere to exercise outdoors. Couldn’t be happier.  more »
  • I visited this place in Oktober 2018. The place is a god place for jogging and exploring the nature.  more »
  • You'll see Capybaras for sure. Very nice for a run or even a romantic walk especially when the sun is coming down. During Christmas time they have a huge metal tree that lights up. Good for pics. I wish the water was cleaner though.
  • Very lovely park with a wide lake in the middle. And of course - Capybaras. One of the most adorable creatures in the world. Just waking near the river bank. If one of them is in a good mood you can pet it for a while. Positive emotions are guaranteed. Place worth visiting.
