  • Park with 17km of Cyclovia in the middle of the Atlantic Forest. Safe, clean and beautiful. It has a beautiful lagoon and lake. Excellent for pequenique, rest and leisure.

  • Although not being well managed, Pituaçu Park presents a very good environment for the family and the practice of cycling on its 15km route.

  • Hello, this afternoon I was in the park of Pituaçu where I could stroll on the paddle boats in the pond. I went with two more people, adults, and to my sad surprise there was only one pair of pedals, that is, only one occupant would pedal, doing all the strength alone. I do not know why to remove the pedals on the right side, but it gets very tiring only one person doing all the driving force, making the ride less profitable and even annoying. -The price charged was 18 reais for 3 people for 15 min of use, all OK. -Lifejackets was still in good condition, all right. -Location of the boarding has no adequate access, with low water level, access to the small deck has no ladder or ramp, negative point. -good service of the two responsible employees, although an external poster the cabin is a good addition. -The worst thing is to get on board and find out that only one person will do anything. -I will not return as long as I remain so, and advise everyone I know not to take the tour for a while.

  • It's good to relax, but sometimes is a little bit empty, it's not crowd.
  • The neighborhood park where all you can eat fresh mangos is it's best feature. An oasis of refreshment in the hot summers.
  • Ok
  • Nice park to drive around on bycikles that you can rent on a site. Great to spend afternoon with family and kids. There was visible security through the park so it feels safe. Park has also a lake that you can explore on canoe or "swan like" pedal floats. If you like modern art and sculptures, it is a great place to see artwork of Brazilian sculptor Mario Cravo. Unfortunately the sculptures have seen better days, so I would not wait to see these too long..
  • I love it.
