Ibirapuera Park, Sao Paulo

(28,000+ reviews on the web)
Nature / Park
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.

  • 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.
  • I visit the park at least once a week, either to work or relax. It's perfect for tourists or four 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.
  • Best park in the city. Wonderful sights both during the day and night. You can rent bikes and roller skates real cheap and there are plenty of food stands arround.
  • Beautiful vibrant park with so much going on. Many people come and enjoy the park by tuning, cycling, working out, practice yoga amongst many things more. Brilliant area for skateboarding. Sunday afternoon fills up with teenagers listening to music, skating and romancing. It is kept amazingly clean. The museums inside are extraordinary. A park with all types of areas. The lakes are beautiful. Has nothing to envy from the great parks of the world
  • A must see in Sao Paulo. It's a little quiet and green slice of paradise in the city and a good escape from the crowd. Great museums, beautiful graffiti and wall art, cool installation art exhibits outdoors. Plenty of animal roaming free. Areas of shade and areas of sun.
