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.

広場 (hiroba) can be used.

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.

すべり台, 回転木馬(if you mean merry-go-round), and ブランコ, respectively.

ooh, the name is the same (回転木馬) if you have other things, not just horses?

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.
