The Argentine province of Cordoba is home to some of the country’s most incredible natural landscapes. But there are also plenty of green spaces inside the city itself to enjoy the great outdoors. Check out our list of the most beautiful parks and gardens in Cordoba, Argentina.

Paseo del Bicentenario

Paseo del Bicentenario, Cordoba

This new green space was inaugurated in 2010 and features an unusual collection of 201 large circular rings that have been erected in Parque Sarmiento to celebrate Argentina’s bicentenary. Each ring represents milestones in Argentina’s history, while the 201st ring represents Argentina’s future. They are painted in primary colours and are reminiscent of Olympic rings. It is popular with students, who come here on their breaks to chat with friends and drink mate.

1. Parque Sarmiento

Park, Zoo

Parque Sarmiento is the largest green space in the city, and is a sprawling swath of lakes, trees, grassy knolls and impressive museums, statues and monuments. Lie back and relax or picnic on one of the lawns, or take a walk to the Faro, a tall twisting statue that was erected in 2011 and is intended to be the icon of the city. There is also a zoo and plenty of paths on which you can explore the park.

3. Reserva Natural Parque San Martin

Park

Reserva Natural Parque San Martin provides visitors with a much-needed dose of the countryside just outside the limits of the city. A wild and untamed natural reserve, it is a far cry from the urban landscaping of the city’s Parque Sarmiento, and instead is home to roving swathes of natural vegetation which grows wild, and a river which flows through the site can be appreciated from its banks. There are also plenty of walking trails for anyone wishing to get some exercise in.

4. Parque Las Tejas

Park

Located close to Parque Sarmiento, Parque Las Tejas is a sloping plot that is decidedly urban in nature. Bisected by and overlooking a busy road, a modern footbridge links the two sides of the park, and in summer it is the site of outdoor film screenings and jazz performances during the city’s jazz festival.

6. Parque La Serranita

Park

Although not located in the city of Cordoba, this fun-filled activity and entertainment park is well worth a visit, especially if you have kids. Complete with crazy golf, a man-made labyrinth, waterslide and archery, La Serranita is situated in beautiful natural surroundings, only 50km (31 miles) away from the city itself. It’s perfect for a day-long escape, with fun for all the family.
