Ecopark in Buenos Aires, formerly known as the Palermo Zoo, which was closed and modified in 2016.
You may wonder what happened to all the species of animals that lived in that place… those that were in conditions of disease and / or rehabilitation are those that continued on this site (some are still waiting to be released to this day), and the rest were relocated to more suitable places for their animal life.
It is a park open to the public in the heart of Palermo. Located at Av. Sarmiento and Av. Las Heras, it is in charge of the Ministry of the Environment and Public Space of the City. Several Special Projects have been created for animal care.
It is an open-air space with 16.7 hectares, suitable for the whole family, dedicated to environmental education through recreational and immersive experiences.
Here, you can learn about caring for animals and natural environments, through educational and recreational experiences, as well as technology through virtual reality.
Currently, only 50% of the park is open to the public, since the rest continue in works of heritage recovery, readjustment of spaces and other works that add to animal welfare.
The entrance to the park is through Av. Sarmiento 2601 and its hours are from Wednesday to Sunday (and holidays), from 10 am to 5 pm. Closed due to rain!
Given the situation of COVID’19, it has a maximum capacity of 500 people and, upon entering, the staff will take their temperature. Likewise, the use of a mask is mandatory to access.
Entrance is for free!
So, if you want to know a little more about the environment, the species and enjoy a day outdoors, this Ecopark is a wonderful option!
Also, we bring you this note to see other parks to which you can walk from here!
