Parque Laguna De Los Cisnes - City Park Perito Moreno - Argentina

The city’s signature black-necked swan finds a home at Laguna de los Cisnes, which the Aónikenk called Pari-Aike, or Place of the Reeds. It is also an important spot for flamingos, gulls, ducks and other migratory waterfowl.

Laguna de los Cisnes is a major focal point for Peritense social life, too. In summers, families picnic and boat here. In winter, the lagoon becomes a huge, open-air ice skating rink. Hills with vistas over the lakes and countryside hem the south side. Relics from past eras, like the boat used by José Palaviccini to survey the border, are on the east bank.

Getting There

Travel Tips:

The Laguna is presently suffering from a drought that periodically hits the area. In this time, the city plans to clean the basin, restoring its environment in time for the next rains and the return of the black-necked swans. In the interim, birdwatchers can head to the Río Deseado to catch migratory waterfowl.
