Paseo del Bosque

Park in La Plata

Plantations of eucalyptus, gingko, palm and subtropical hardwoods cover Paseo del Bosque, parkland expropriated from an estancia at the time of the city’s founding. It attracts a collection of strolling families, smooching lovers and sweaty joggers, and contains various interesting sights: a small lake with paddleboats for rent; a planetarium; the open-air Teatro Martín Fierro, which hosts music and drama performances (closed for renovations at research time); and the star attraction, Museo de La Plata.
