Ibirapuera Park, Sao Paulo

#Nature / Park, #Must See
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.

  • As we had little time in the city could not meet the entire Park due to your extension, but in enchanted by the beauty! Are several areas, each one with your specificity. I found a bit confusing following the maps available in the paths, but it didn't compromise anything. It is worth dedicating a day to explore the Park and rent a bike for easy displacement.

  • It's a great place for expanding time with friends and family with amazing natural environment. Lot's of beautiful people around here, bring your music, your drinks and foods and enjoy an awesome picnic with a great view. You can also practice sports here and rent bicycles as well. The experience couldn't be more enjoyable than exploring with a bike!
  • Well. It's a very big park. And you have a very good air. You can ride bikes, skates, etc. You can play basketball ans so on But don't go on holidays or weekends. Because it's incredible full of people. And you can waste your time in lines. But for picnics and to play in grass it's amazing.
  • Wonderful park, great for a stroll, jog, bike ride or picnic. Many indoor choices as well for rainy days. Clean public restrooms, many kiosks offering a variety of snacks and drinks at fair prices. Excellent place to hang out with friends, alone, or with family.
  • Great option for a walk, jogging, or strolling outdoors. Great on sunny days - beautiful views. Good selection of beverages like coconut water and juices. On Christmas season, there is a giant Christmas tree and lovely Christmas decorations, including a dancing water fountain that lits up at night, and Christmas carols.
  • Although Very crowded at weekends, but still a good place to pads the day with your family and kids, I recommend a little attention from not being robbed. Best week days from Monday till Friday.
