4.0
#5 of 8 in Parks in Belo Horizonte
Nature / Park
Parque Ecologico Da Pampulha is a large green area where you can practice sports, play with children, or rest among the trees. Motor vehicles are forbidden here, so paths are reserved for pedestrians and bicycles only. Walk the paved trails to see the species of many different ecosystems found in this region. Nature comes right up to the pavement, encouraging visitors to contemplate our use of the world’s shrinking green zones. There are also snack bars, observation decks, small educational centers, benches, water fountains, and many restrooms. You can use any one of the park’s extensive grassy areas for a family picnic, or grab a bike (provided free of charge) for a quick workout in the open air. For travelers who use our world travel planner, Belo Horizonte holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Parque Ecologico Da Pampulha and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

Where to stay in Belo Horizonte

Most of the city's accommodations lie within the inner ring road, in close proximity to the best attractions in Belo Horizonte. For convenience, look to stay in the vicinity of Praça Raul Soares, the city's central park and rotary. You can also find a range of high-rise hotels a bit farther south, in the neighborhoods of Boa Viagem and Savassi, close to Praça Diogo de Vasconcelos. About 10 km (6.2 mi) north of the city center, the 1940s neighborhood of Pampulha stands out as one of the most interesting places to visit in Belo Horizonte, and offers a decent selection of lodgings near the airport.

  • Beautiful World Heritage site. If you visit Belo Horizonte you should spend some time here. The history of this lake and the building around the shore is fascinating,  more »
  • On the edge of the Pampulha Lagoon there is a place where we can rest and watch the green, pay attention to the environment and be able to relieve the tensions caused by the stress of our daily life.  more »
  • Nice clean place, Definitely recommend taking lunch and a a blanket. Went with my wife and we enjoyed our carefree time to just relax and separate ourself a a little from the world.  more »

  • Nice park in the Pampulha region surrounding Pampulha lake. Unfortunately the lake is mostly contaminated and sometimes there is an unpleasant smell. No pets allowed at the park which is very unfortunate.
  • Beautiful place. But it smells bad sometimes and there are lots of people waiting to charge you for parking and for "watching your car", it actually feels like you are getting mugged everytime you go.
  • Ok
  • Beautiful, well kept. Waterside is a bit smelly.
  • Great park, especially for runners. 18,25km... Pretty nice running around...
