Passeio Publico, Curitiba

(1,000+ reviews on the web)
Nature / Park
Built on top of a lagoon, Passeio Publico was considered an important urban development in the 18th century because it replaced a body of water that was a hotbed of disease due to its insect population.  Master Valentim designed the park with passion and care. The stunning Roccoco gates still stand at the park’s entrance while much of the interior's original plan is still intact. Two fountains take center stage: Fonte dos Amores and Fonte dos Jacarés. Valentim also added a number of bronze sculptures mimicking nature throughout the park. In the 19th century, Auguste François Marie Glaziou was commissioned to give the park an update. However, he opted to keep the statuary and simply converted the restrictive design of the flora into a more natural arrangement for the Romantic era.

  • the place is not safe to walk, the location is frequented by popular, prostitutes, homeless and drug users. Although it is an appropriate location for walks, does not offer security.

  • The Promenade is located in the Centre and at the beginning we didn't so much to know, but after meeting we are sure that we would regret it if we hadn't gone there. A pretty cool ride, more urbanized than the other parks, where you see more nature, but where you can see various types of animals, has a bit of nature too.

  • I used to go there a lot when I was a kid but nowadays, it's kind of decadent and dangerous. There's a nice playground, a so-so zoo with some nice parrots, lots of trees, and a smelly lake. Watch out ...  more »

  • It's a good place to go for a walk or run. There are many indigenous species on show there, most of them rescued from illegal export. There is also the possibility of going for a pedalo ride or have a churrasco near the water. Great place for an afternoon!
  • Lugar legal mas meio abandonado
  • Great city park, with a selection of birds (parrots, Tucans, etc.), a small area of aquariums, some ponds and with free entrance.
  • Great for running or cycling. It is surrounded by trees. Even under hot days this is a good place to go.
