In Escobar there are three fantastic places to visit:

Japanese garden
It was opened in 1969 as a gift from the Japanese community
on the 40th Anniversary of its establishment in Escobar. Located
in the city center, the bridge has the country's largest granite
and a traditional scenery called Tsukiyama Sansui (mountain water), or " Ikeniwa " ( lake - stone) . Ornamental features are
the stone lanterns.

Malvinas War Heroes Square


It is a square located on 25 de Mayo Avenue and Independence
Street. It was cast in homage to 4 of the Argentine heroes who
fought in the Malvinas Islands which opened in 1997.

The maze

It is a different and original place to have fun. It is a healthy


and fun game for all ages, where with wit and sense of
direction, you must find the way out of this labyrinth. The paths
are carefully designed for this game, you must walk dozens of
aisles formed by more than 5,000 plants. This place is ideal to
spend the day with a group of friends, with family or as an
educational outing (schools, senior centers, etc.).
