Passeio Publico, Curitiba

(3.2/5 based on 950+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Very well maintained park. It has a playground and a small Zoo. Great place to spend the day, especially for those with children. At night, no way!

  • If you will visit during the day, reasonable, because you will find a few nurseries of birds like macaws, toucans and exotic birds, will have a playground for the kids (in terrão, and poorly maintained and dirty), and brings a pond with fish Never pass around at night! Is full of bandits and chemical dependent however. I stayed close and almost got mugged 2 times. Web shopping muller

  • A fascinating place. clean, safe with good playground and some animals for exhibition. Also possible to have lunch at the restaurant inside with honest prices. I spent a few quiet hours 3 without two kids (5 and 2 years old) would get bored.

  • 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.
