Parque 2 de Febrero is a shady public space with plenty of facilities for all kinds of recreation. If you are craving a BBQ, buy some meat and beer and join the locals cooking up a feast. With luck, you might even be able to get some local Argentine cooking tips about how to make the best asado. After some food, take a dip in the public pool, play some volleyball or kick around the old fÃºtbol. Or cool off browsing the air-conditioned Museo de Esculturas Urbanas del Mundo of FundaciÃ³n Urunday, known simply as MUSEUM (daily 7:30 a.m.-1 p.m.).
