Ibirapuera Park, Sao Paulo

(4.7/5 based on 26,000+ reviews on the web)
Home to various museums and monuments, Ibirapuera Park is one of the city’s most important recreational and cultural areas. This green area features sprawling areas designated for picnicking, jogging, cycling, and walking. The park’s importance to the city, locals claim, is comparable to that of Central Park to the residents of New York City. One of Latin America’s largest urban parks, the site opened in 1954 to mark the 400th anniversary of the city. Many of the park’s buildings were designed by famed architect Oscar Niemeyer, while the landscaped green zones were planned by agronomist Otávio Agusto de Teixeira Mendes. The park is home to the Museum of Modern Art, Museum of Contemporary Art, and the iconic Obelisk of Sao Paolo, symbol of Brazil’s Constitutional Revolution.

  • Ótimo para pratica de esportes
  • The number one must see attraction for the city. You can spend a whole day in this park! It is a modernist project and has a theater, two museums, a Japanese palace, a planetarium and tons of little corners to explore. During the weekends sometimes there are music shows happening. Good place to go jogging, riding a bike or play in one of the many courts. The only issue: there are no restaurants in the park, only snack vending carts and ice cream stalls.
  • The most famous park in the city, is really crowded at the weekends. But, is a good place to take a walk, skating, bike, picnic or simple go outdoor with the family or friends. Now is a good place for playing Pokemon Go, but don't go alone and be careful with bad people who wants to take you mobile while you are playing. Stop the car there is stressful, go with Uber, bike or bus.
  • Maior parque urbano da America Latina, ideal pra praticas de exercicios fisicos.
  • Sao Paulo's Central Park. This is the heart of the culture of Sao Paulo, hosting everything from military parades, cultural events, art showings, celebrations, new year's fireworks, and the largest Christmas tree in South America. Ibirapuera is an excellent place to go jogging, do urban sports, or just go spend the day in the sun.
