Parque Barigui, Curitiba

4.7
#3 of 16 in Parks in Curitiba
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.

    Great Park, and with good security. Perfect place to take the family or doing outdoor exercises. Very close to shopping centers, shops and residential buildings. Worth knowing!

    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.

    A wide park area is an awesome place to be in touch with nature and people, mainly on crowdy weekends.

    Watch out for crocodiles. Especially if you're taking pets or small kids.

Where to stay in Curitiba

Wherever you choose to stay in the city, you'll be able to get from place to place on your Curitiba itinerary in a breeze, thanks to the rapid bus transit system. Most higher-end hotels sit in or very close to the city center, especially along the pedestrianized main street of Rua XV de Novembro. Stay here if you want quick access to the best shopping strip in town. You can look slightly out of the center, in the neighborhoods of Batel and Seminário, to mingle with the city's posh crowd. Curitiba's continuing growth in popularity with younger tourists means you can now find any number of budget youth hostels, mainly concentrated in the center and inner suburbs.
