Buenos Aires Zoo Becomes Eco-park | Official English Website for the City of Buenos Aires

The historic zoo is being transformed into an educational, animal-friendly eco-park. Come to see the transformation in process!

The historic zoo

Buenos Aires zoo was opened in 1888 and functioned until 2016. Although today it is in the process of being transformed into the modern eco-park, visitors can still appreciate its original Victorian-era architecture. The pavillions, which have been declared national historic monuments, reflect the traditional architecture of the countries that the different animals came from – with Moorish, Indian, Chinese and Greek/Roman-style buildings.  The former zoo also boasts numerous pieces of art including work by Argentine scultress Lola Mora.
