Must see · Garden · Nature / Park
As you pass through the entryway gates at Jardim Botanico de Curitiba, you'll see the unmistakable Art Nouveau greenhouse that resembles the 19th-century Crystal Palace in London. Fountains, ponds, and waterfalls intersperse the gardens planted in French style. Tropical plants, many of which are rare, reside in the greenhouse alongside palms and native plants. The Botanic Museum provides a collection of native flora and botanical species from the Atlantic forests, which attracts researchers from all around the world.

Strolling along the paths brings you past native forest trees, gardens with native flowers, and 114 sculptural works, like "A Mãe" (The Mother). The Museum of Franz Krajcberg behind the greenhouse features the artist's collection and other artistic works including sculptures, art, and reliefs, as well as publications, photographs, educational materials, and videos. Walking across the wooden bridge towards the other side of the park brings you to the large herbarium in the Botanical Museum housed in a timber building. Surrounding the building is a lake, a library, an auditorium, a theater, an exposition area, tennis courts, and a cycling track, to name a few of the attractions. Children especially love to peer into the pond out front to identify carp, herons, teal, and turtles.

  • This place is just amazing. I was there with the whole family and it's mesmerizing! The amount of trees and fauna is just beautiful. I wish there were place like this in my country. It's perfect for a long walk and to make a picnic. Very good for children and friends.
  • The garden and the greenhouse are very beautiful. There is a kiosk selling food and a information center. A good place to visit with the family. Entrance is free.
  • Great place. Best park option for tourists traveling on Curitiba. I'm sure you will enjoy this place.
  • Great place to visit specially in a sunny day. Just required to follow the rules which is fair enough to keep that place for public. Just limited parking lot...
  • Very nice park in Curitiba, must seeing. Very well kept. You can go there using line “Centenário” of the ligeirinho or tubinho public bus (the silver one). There is one coffee shop there and some other places to eat nearby. It’s a really hot spot of Curitiba. Deserve some time to enjoy it.
