Saavedra neighborhood is located north of Buenos Aires City. It is the only Porteño neighborhood that has a foundation act (1873). Its name honors the president of the first government assembly, Cornelio Saavedra. It is famous for its many park and green spaces (especially Saavedra Park, Sarmiento Park and General Paz Park).
