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.

  • What about the Ibirapuera? In addition to being our "central park" perfect to breathe, walk, take the kids, play various sports, dating, sunbathe, read, think. Lota on Saturdays and Sundays afternoon, avoid these pickpockets care schedules also go with tennis, the place and great if you want to go.

  • A good place for a family picnic. I recommend going near the lake. You could watch the swans and other birds catching fishes. Bring your own food and water in case you get hungry or thirsty. Be mindful of the cyclists. They sometimes don't cycle on the bicycle lane.
  • One of my favorite points in Brazil, you can rent a bike for about 10R$ an hour and then roam around this huge park full of people and life. You can stop for an ice cream or buy coconut water. You can stop by buskers performing beautiful songs or sit by the lake. It's all so crowded yet so beautifully liberating. There's a museum and a skating ring and so much that I can't put in a review box. 😻
  • This is probably one of the best parks I have been too, and I have been to vondel park in Amsterdam. I have not seen Central Park, also I m only talking about the famous city parks here. Nice chill place to relax have a quick exercise in the outdoor gym.. Everyone is so happy and relaxed even you feel the same.
  • I visit the park at least once a week, either to work out or relax. It's perfect for tourists or for regulars. There are monuments, museums, food/drink vendors, outdoor activities to participate in, or nature to look at. I prefer running on the less-trafficked 6km marked trail around the edge of the park instead of on the main paved loop.
  • With 390 acres Ibirapuera is Latin America's largest urban park and its iconic importance is comparable to that of Central Park in New York City. A great place to enjoy nature in this mega city and easy to get to by public transport. Scan the Ibirapuera events calendar for its vivid cultural scene.
