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.

I visited the garden on a beautiful sunny day in October. I liked the relaxed atmosphere, with many local people enjoying a lazy Sunday afternoon with family or friends, picknicking or just relaxing in the shade of the trees. The garden is a bit overgrown...More

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.

Nice place to go with kids, take pictures and have a mate. Nothing special there. Restrooms are awfully ugly but clean. Almost impossible to get a taxi there. Easy to go by bus.

Spent the whole day here, picknicking and chilling with a blunt or two. There are some areas that are secluded and nice, and the locals also use this "botanical" garden for relaxation and fun times. The garden is more exotic than the average garden, but...More
