A network of streets and green spaces, where Rodin left his mark with a commemorative monument to Sarmiento.
Fresh air and greenery.
This network of squares and avenues is also one of the city’s largest green spaces. Its name is actually 3rd of February Park, named after the date of the Battle of Caseros. President Nicolas de Avellaneda opened it to the public on the 11th of November 1875. He was the successor of Domingo Faustino Sarmiento, who proposed its construction. In 1891, the French Director of Public Walkways and landscaper, Carlos Thays, was put in charge of creating the park and incorporating sculptures, such as the monument dedicated to President Sarmiento, by Auguste Rodin. It also underwent expansions in the 20th century. In 1914, the Rosedal was inaugurated. This is one of the most popular areas of the park, due to its jetty and Grecian-inspired bridge. Due to its large expansion, you can visit the Monument of the Spanish, the planetarium and the city’s cycle track, without even leaving the area.
