Parque Barigui, Curitiba

(4.7/5 based on 5,500+ reviews on the web)
Besides refuge for animals, Parque Barigui is also a natural preservation area within the city limits that offers many activities and opportunities to connect with the locals. You and your family can stay active with amenities including fitness equipment, paddle boats, playing fields, trails, skating rink, and a BMX track. An onsite bistro serves lunch and dinner, or you can cook your own food at one of the park's grills. The native forest surrounding the lake (formed by a dam) is rich in flora and fauna, like orchids and 200 species of birds.

As you approach the lake, you may catch a glimpse of the Barigüi alligator who sunbathes on the lake's shore--but there's no need to worry because this reptile has never bothered any visitors during its lifetime in the park. The grounds provide a home for the Automobile Museum, a Steam Train Station, an exhibition park, an amusement park, and a helipad where you can charter a lift in a helicopter. Put Parque Barigui into our Curitiba vacation builder to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Curitiba.

  • People who love outdoors do visit this place. One of the best places I visited in Curitiba. You would find lot of people coming here taking time out and having fun. Large park with a lake on between adds to the beauty... Worth a visit
  • A huge and beautiful part that is great for walking and cycling and skating. There are restaurants and bars on the lake and you can see wildlife including ducks. There are separate paths for running and cycling, but people don't respect the difference often. There is a place for stretching and exercise and you can even rent electric bikes.
  • nice and comfortable park close to the city center. many possibilities to grab some food/drinks
  • Excelente parque. Fica lotado nos finais de semana. Poderia ter uma manutenção melhor das pistas de corrida e bicicleta. Várias opções de lazer.
  • That's the best place in Curitiba to run, meet friends or just relax. If you're lucky enough you'll see the 'oil man' riding a bike.
