Imposing . That's the main word that could describe it. From any of its corners it is possible to visualize the Paraná River . Its characteristic slopes give us viewpoints with unique sunsets. It is that Parque Urquiza is a symbol within the town and a home that houses its citizens.
It represents the favorite place to go to take math, read books, exercise or stay still. However, his greatest notoriety lies in the fact that he knew how to become, over time, a meeting place for people. Thus, along its ravines lies the lawn that gives rise to memorable anecdotes .
Its history began to be woven in 1893 when the distribution of General Urquiza 's inheritance was made known. There, his wife, Dolores Costa, belonged to the land that was called La Batería at that time. In November, the mayor of the city, Don Jaime Baucis, asked the woman to donate the land in order to create a public space.
This request was made by means of a letter explicating that the place would bear the name of the procerer entrerriano. Subsequently, the widow agreed and sent one of her children to negotiate. Over the years, more lots were annexed, some concessioned by neighbors and others bought by the municipality. The result was its current extension , which accumulates the total of 44 hectares .
The design was in charge of the French architect Carlos Thays and afforestation in the hands of gardener Julio Kumagae . Among the planted species are silver poplars, garden laurels, bald cypresses, pink laps, jacarandas, drunk sticks and chañares. There are also aromas, oaks, ceibos, willows, cedars, paradises, tipas and pine trees.
The property is divided into three levels : the Costanera Alta, Medium and Low . The latter are connected by numerous stairs, trails and streets through which one can climb or down the ravines. Likewise, the Paraná current can be traveled with the view through Laurencena Avenue . The same part from Puerto Nuevo to the historic Bajada de Los Vascos .
In the Costanera Baja there is a passage next to Paraná, on which people walk for pleasure or exercise. There, there are large spaces with vegetation that are used informally for sports such as football, rugby and athletics. In addition, in this fragment are also the beaches of the Estudiantes and Rowing clubs, and the municipal spa .
On the Costanera Media there is the amphitheater Héctor Santángelo , a setting where great cultural venues are developed. It was inaugurated on December 16, 1985 , with the presence of the trio formed by Lito Vitale, Bernardo Baraj and Lucho González. It has a capacity of approximately 2,000 people and is commonly used to screen films, present works of theatres and perform musical shows.
Finally, we have the Costanera Alta. It is essentially a viewpoint on the river , because it is located on top of the surface. Here, you will find El Rosedal , a place of high turnaround and the most chosen by the locals. On its trails art meets nature , given that it has several sculptures. Some of them are the Venus Salting Del Baño, restored by Amanda Mayor, and the Liberator's Column, created by Osvaldo Rapetti.
In each fragment of Urquiza Park we will collide with unforgettable sunset postcards . Depending on the time of day you visit it, you can observe various contexts. In this regard, in the mornings there will be endless runners who attend before going to work. Then in the evenings you will be invaded with families enjoying sun loungers and sellers offering cotton candy. While in the evenings the youth will take prominence, meeting with loud music and taking advantage of the fresh air. However, every hour you dial the clock will always be a good time to go find a meeting time.
