Situated on the city bus tour route, a great place to get off and walk around. The fine art gallery is there too.

We went there as part of a photo visit to Montevideo, and were delighted to wander along the narrow paths, finding incredible shapes and shadows. Wonderful place also to rest from a heavy walking day.

The Botanical Garden features mostly trees. We had hoped to learn more about indigenous varieties, but the garden features exotics from around the world. Still, the trails are pleasant and the shade is refreshing. A nice stroll through an urban oasis.

The park is a bit old style. One gets the impression that the layout is a bit by accident. Still it is ancient stroll on a warm day.

Nice gardens a bit out of city Center. Nice break from the city. You can hear lots of birds and walk around the aerobic circle. Not big but feels nice to roam around.

This is one of Montevideo´s wonderfully treed parks. Signs on many trees are explanatory, and there are some beautiful fountains with lily pads and sculptures. The cool breeze was most welcome. Not too big to walk all the way around.
