Hi everyone, I would like to know something. I'm from Argentina and here we've got "plazas" where you can find trees, benches, a carousel, a slide, fountains, swings, etc. Are smaller than parks, usually a block. So my question is if in Japanese you called it with an special word or just 公園

And can you give me a vocabulary in Japanese for things you can find there?. Thank you.

Yeah, although 公園 would be most appropriate for the large one like in your pictures, if it exists in a city, is relatively small, and has less trees and play equipments, it would be called 広場.

回転木馬 would work fine, but if it has boat or automobile-type seats, メリーゴーランド, i.e. the transcription of merry-go-round, is the best choice.
