Buenos Aires Ecological Reserve, Reserva Ecológica de Buenos Aires, also recognized as Costanera Sur Ecological Reserve, Reserva Ecológica Costenera Sur, is a 865-acre (three.50 km2) tract of very low land on the Río de la Plata riverbank positioned on the east side of the district of Puerto Madero in Buenos Aires CBD, Argentina.
The Ecological Reserve, declared a purely natural park in the 1980s, was formed by a land-fill of squander substance of demolished structures dumped in the river off Costanera Sud avenue to make way for freeway construction through Buenos Aires in the 70s. About time, sand and sediment began to create up and developed alone into a biodiversity sample of the native Llanura Pampeana ecosystem, the region now features a handful of trees, largely willows, ceibos and acacias and is household to the city’s only wild flamingos, egrets, ducks, parrots and nutrias. Sadly, the reserve’s potential is uncertain since industrial real estate schemes are a constant menace as nicely by a north-south expressway connector that might appear by this region. In any circumstance, time is working on its side and we might see the controversial Ecological Reserve give Buenos Aires a breath of clean everyday living following all.
On January 9 of 2009, the Ecological Reserve caught hearth. The massive cloud of smoke persisted about Puerto Madero for practically 24 several hours, and was finally set out by the hearth section.

La Reserva Ecológica de Buenos Aires, también denominada Reserva Ecológica Costanera Sur, esta situada en el lado este del distrito de Puerto Madero, es un gigantesco espacio verde de la Ciudad Autónoma de Buenos Aires (350 ha) ubicado en la costa del Río de la Plata.
La reserva se encuentra en un gran terreno ganado al río, al rellenar una porción del mismo con los escombros de las demoliciones realizadas para la construcción de autopistas en las décadas de los 70 y 80.
Si bien el objetivo authentic de estos rellenos period urbanizarlos para convertirlos en un «ensanche del área central» de la ciudad, este proyecto fue finalmente cancelado y los terrenos quedaron abandonados. Durante los años de abandono espontáneamente se desarrollaron el terreno un verdadero muestrario de los distintos ecosistemas nativos de la llanura chacopampeana: pastizales, lagunas, bosques de sauces y de acacias, etcetera, con gran riqueza en lo que a flora y fauna se refiere.
