Don Bosco is a locality and a rail station, in the north-eastern of the Quilmes Partido (south of the Greater Buenos Aires, Argentina). Formerly called "Station of the 13th kilometer", takes its name from Don Bosco by the influence of the Salesians of Don Bosco and the Salesian Sisters of Don Bosco congregations located in Bernal; the same neighbors sought the name change, which was issued on 4 November 1929. The demonym for residents is bosquenses.

Don Bosco stands surrounding the Railway General Roca. His station is the sixth from Constitution Station.

It is a mostly residential neighborhood, with a small commercial center near the station.
