One of the most traditional carousels of Buenos Aires has recently been restored. Renamed as The Carousel of the Bicentenary, it can be visited in Saavedra neighborhood, north of our city, until December 31st. The carousel is located in General Paz Park and has the particularity of being the only one with traditional Argentine designs, inspired in our famous country.
The carousel was installed in 1943, full of traditional colonial and Pampa images. It used to be topped by rushes, until they were replaced in 1952 by a tin cover. Its flagpole and structure define it as a unique specimen. The initiative of a group of neighborhoods was heard by the Buenos Aires City Government and the carousel returned after a 32 years absence.
Unique by style and architecture, the Carousel of the Bicentenary is located in 6309 Crisólogo Larralde Street. It can be visited Tuesdays to Fridays from 9AM to 6PM and Saturdays, Sundays and Holidays from 10AM to 8PM.
