Paza Alemania is sorrounded by Avenida Del Libertador, Avenida Casares, Castex and Cavia. The designer of this park was French landscape-architect Charles Thays, who is also the author of the plans for the Botanical Garden of Buenos Aires, among other parks in Buenos Aires. It was inaugurated in 1914, with its flower beds and a European-style garden.

The imposing monument-fountain located in the center of the park, called “Riqueza Agropecuaria Argentina” (Argentinian Agricultural Wealth), was donated by the German community in 1910 as an acknowledgment of Argentina´s hospitality. It was created by sculptor Gustav Adolf Bredow in Rome´s lava (soft rock), Carrara marble and bronze.

In 2004, the city's Government decided to recover the original layout and splendor of the park, which had been abandoned throughout the years. One of the main works was the renovation and recovery of the fountain which wasn´t functioning for many years. The playground for children was also renovated with new equipment.
