Parque de la Memoria

Park in Belgrano, Nuñez & the Costanera Norte

On the edge of the river on the Costanera Norte is this landscaped park and gallery that serves as a memorial to the victims of the military dictatorships of 1969 to 1983. There is a monument dedicated to the disappeared and assassinated, with enough plaques for 30,000 names (9000 of them are inscribed), and a number of sculptures including a piece by Dennis Oppenheim and 53 road signs depicting the recent history of Argentina. A visitors center houses a gallery and archive.

Despite the darkness of the events the park memorializes, it's a pleasant place where families come to picnic, roller skate and enjoy the river views.
