El Rosedal

El Rosedal, near our apartment in Palermo, is a rose garden. It is part of a much larger park system called the Parque Tres de febrero (also known as Bosques de Palermo, meaning Palermo Woods).

The rose garden covers 3.5 hectares and features 18,000 rose buses.

The entire park is an oasis from the heat and humidity of the city and many people come out in the early evening to walk, cycle, jog or silly walk.

The rose garden features numerous art works and the busts of 26 dead poets and writers. The writer to the left, is not.
