The sprawling complex of parks and plazas known as the Bosques de Palermo houses a true urban gem: the Rosedal. More than a simple rose garden, this enclosed area of the park is home to over 12,000 rose bushes and shrubs. In a city that is better known for its architectural landmarks, a stroll through the Rosedal is a refreshing change of scenery. There are also paddle boat and row boat rentals nearby on the adjacent lake. Bear in mind that very strict rules are enforced; do not wander off the paths onto the grass because one of the guards on duty will literally blow the whistle on you.
