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.

  • Without doubt the most beautiful park of SP. but must pay attention to the day and time you will attend. The audience are switched and weekends and holidays with sunshine, is unbearable to crowded. People from every neighborhood and commute regions to come to this park.

  • The Ibira doesn't need much recommendation: it is the best Park of São Paulo, the most complete. The only difficulty is access to who's going to public transportation, which can be a little annoying but not impossible.

  • Absolutely fantastic park located in central SP. Park is lovely and very well maintained. There are sports courts, bike lanes, skateboarding areas ,museums, lakes. There is something for all. Bikes can be hired just outside the park at a good rate and parking is available nearby to the park. Would definitely recommend anyone in SP to go and spend a day at the park. You will definitely not regret it. Nice surrounding area to the park too making you feel safe.
  • Biggest park, I Have ever seen. Also this is first I saw so much of Brazilian people at place. Good for family outing. Sunday's plan with friends to just feel the breeze of lake. .
  • This park has really improved in the last year. It is super clean, and really pretty. Great place to walk, take your kids, or even go for a bike ride. There's rent bikes outside so you don't even need to bring your own.
  • Great park. Nice to stroll. Can get crowded during the weekends. Lots of amenities. Recommend in less crowded days.
