Bosques De Palermo, Where History Springs

As the lungs of the city, the park functions as a recreation center, but its foliage can also breathe the political struggle of a country under construction .

Palermo" was always a two-card card, two-sided coin, "wrote Jorge L. Borges in his book Evaristo Carriego. And, certainly, his words summarize the history of Parque Tres de Febrero. Popularly known as the Bosques de Palermo, its 400 hectares (990 acres) have witnessed public and private events of the porteños. Picnics, marathons, dates and recitals take place between lakes and centuries-old trees, but also, among its rose gardens, a past of fierce struggles between “civilization and barbarism” germinates.

Its prehistory dates back to the founding of Buenos Aires in 1580. The owner of the property decided to add the name of his hometown, Palermo, to his surname, and soon they all named the area of that way. Already in the 19th century, the land became an emblem of bloody struggles, when the then Governor of Buenos Aires, the caudillo Juan Manuel de Rosas, bought the land to build his house and a navigable pond. Seen by its opponents as the seat of a despotic power, the estate became a symbol of brutality and ignorance.
After a civil war, on February 3, 1852 Rosas was overthrown and slowly the idea of creating a park that covered the spilled blood with flowers began to appear. The tyrant's estate was demolished, and a statue of a staunch enemy was erected in its place. Since then, the Forests have had multiple transformations and uses, but if one looks at the placidity of the lake, one can still see the reflection of turbulent waters. & Nbsp;
