Super walk at Ecological Reserve Costanera Sur, Buenos Aires

This nature reserve is very small but located at the edge of the city between the modern Madero district and the Atlantic Ocean. At the southern entrance you see the Nereids Fountain. The large grass fields you see on the pictures are in fact lakes. The water is however not visible due to the dense grasslands. A bit like some parts of the Everglades.

Costanera Sur has a big variety of plants, flowers and birds. We met many bird-watchers and people jogging which seems to be a popular activity. It is certainly a better place to do sports than the hectic city center of Buenos Aires.

On our walk we felt completely relaxed, away from the city. Occasionally you are reminded how close the skyscrapers are when a few trees make place for an open space. An ideal location to make a few pictures and the nature reserve looks very safe.

Dit beschermd natuurgebied is heel klein en gelegen aan de rand van de stad tussen de moderne Madero wijk en de Atlantische Oceaan. Bij de zuidelijke ingang zie je de Nereids Fontein. De grote grasvelden op de foto's zijn in feite meren. Het water is echter niet zichtbaar vanwege het dicht begroeide riet. Dit is vergelijkbaar met sommige delen van de Everglades.

Costanera Sur bevat een grote verscheidenheid aan planten, bloemen en vogels. Hier zagen we veel bird-watchers en joggers, wat er heel populair is. Het is ontegensprekelijk een betere locatie om aan sport te doen dan het chaotische stadscentrum van Buenos Aires. 

Op onze wandeling kwamen we volledig tot rust, even weg uit de stad. Af en toe werden we herinnerd hoe dicht we wel waren als we door de bomen de wolkenkrabbers zagen. Een ideale plaats om foto's te trekken en het natuurgebied lijkt ons heel veilig.
