Buenos Aires Ecological Reserve, Reserva Ecológica de Buenos Aires, also known as Costanera Sur Ecological Reserve, Reserva Ecológica Costanera Sur, is a 865-acre (3.50 km2) tract of low land on the Río de la Plata riverbank located on the east side of the district of Puerto Madero in Buenos Aires CBD, Argentina.
After opening in 1918, the Municipal Riverside resort was witness to the splendour and decadence of the “Costanera Sur” promenade. On foot, by car or tram, thousands of porteños came to this place in search of fresh air in summer afternoons, or to bathe in the river, smartly clad in their one piece bathing costume and carrying a towel. In accordance to the 1923 Regulations, men and women bathed in the river separated by the long pier.

A range of wildlife habitats make this a rare wildlife location for a major world city! Popular with bird watchers, runners, locals and tourists, the reserve has a number of routes within. From the 2km stretch between entrances to longer loops that take you around the lakes and to the ocean. Informative signage, viewing platforms, litter bins and water fountains throughout. Excellent views of the new skyscrapers as you look back into the city.

Very nice area to go for a walk or jogging and to enjoy nature. I was surprised about the number of species you can see close to this crowded urban area. Inside the park it is clean, but at some spots close to the road you see unfortunately a lot of trash.

Surprisingly nice. It's longish walk with no infrastructure once you pass the entrance so be prepared. The main beach is genuinely lovely, with park benches, grass and a view out over the Rio de la Plata. Great for cycling, walking, picnics or jogging. A true city escape. Closed Mondays and holidays. Open until 7pm in summer, 6pm in winter.

A fantastic experience and definitely worth a visit when in Buenos Aires. A good range of habitats from boggy marshes to the sea! Lots of wildlife and a really good way to while away a few hours

A great little escape right near the city. I would suggest hiring a bike before heading as the walk would be a fairly long one. Toilets are located about halfway around the park and there are plenty of stops and things to do on your way around. Take some lunch and make a half day of it. A great relief from the hectic city.

I went at night from like 11:30pm until around 1am. I was able to see some aspects of the local night life. People out with their whole families, with their kids and babies, just hanging out, eating, some dancing. There were also a lot of statues, trees, different places to sit and hang out. The actual reserve was closed because it was night but I could kind of see across the river into it.

A perfect way to escape from the city without the headache of planning a big trip. Just a stroll and you're in Buenos Aires own ecological reserve with nice walking paths, locals running and riding bicycles. Also offers beautiful views over the river Rio de la Plata. No entrance fee, a great place for nature lovers and bird watchers. Tours in English and Spanish possible per request.

Great place with free access to enjoy the nature. You can rent a bike for free, as well, to visit it. There are different pathways, shorter or longer, depending how much you want to walk or cycle. You can see many birds and some cuises (local small animals). There are toilets and an information centre at the gate. #LetsGuide

It is a great place to be together with nature, walk for a while and share the outdoors. If you want to do sports like jogging and running is one of the best places in the city
