Carlos Thays Park

Carlos Thays Park, in the heart of Recoleta and very close to many other activities, which we tell you in this other note to enjoy Buenos Aires outdoors!

This large park has 4500m2 (more than 4 hectares), and bears this name in honor of the well-known Landscape Architect Carlos Thays.

Here, you will find outstanding works by great and well-known artists such as Marta Minujín (“United Nations“); the plastic artist Fernando Botero (“Male Torso“); the Italian sculptor Alejo Afani (“Pro National Culture“); among many others.

Entrance is free and open!

Located on Av. Figueroa Alcorta and Av. Callao, it is very close to some bars to enjoy a picnic in the open air and, later, to be able to go for a drink in the same area. Also, it is a few steps from the Law School, the National Museum of Fine Arts, the Floralis Genérica and the Recoleta Cemetery.

It is truly a beautiful green space to enjoy a bit of the outdoors, close to many other attractions so you can plan a whole day in Recoleta. For more information, read this other note about this magnificent and picturesque neighborhood of Buenos Aires.
