3:20 PM Sandra Gutrejde 0 Comments

The Rose Garden (El Rosedal), surrounded by Infanta Isabel, Iraola and Pres. P. Montt avenues, and protected all around by an iron gate, is the heart of the Tres de Febrero park. It was created in 1914 by the landscaper Carlos Thays.

The main attractions inside the park are:

° The Andalusian Patio: built in 1929 and given away by the city of Seville, Spain.
° The Arbor (La Pergola), covered with climbing rose bushes:
° The White Bridge, a magnificent construction of wood built over the lake after a design by architect Benito Carrasco in 1914
° The Poet's Garden, with busts in honor to poets from different countries, like William Shakespeare, Alfonsina Storni, Dante Alighieri, Federico GarcĂ­a Lorca, Antonio Machado and Jorge Luis Borges, among others.
° The artificial lake, with its wooden piers, bridges and amphitheater:
° The Rose Garden itself, in the heart of the park, with its many flower beds which are home to over 12,000 rose bushes of different kinds.

The area around the Rose Garden and its lake is one of the preferred places in the city for open air activities, especially on weekends when it's also possible to enjoy live music, free gym classes, street performers. At the lake, you can hire boats with paddles or pedals. Around the lake, the pedestrian streets are perfect for roller blading, cycling, jogging, or just walking for taking in some fresh air and enjoying nature:
