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.

  • In the middle of the town a paradise. In the middle of a concrete jungle, a place of refuge to air ideas

  • I visit because I was told that fence did not have much time to navigate it really is great. It has two lakes is a place frequented by people who do exercise, running or bike. It has several routes marked on the floor and signage indicating that que.recorrido corresponds to each. floor area is marked for walking area where to run or bike is very tidy.

  • Ibirapuera Park is an incredible space to walk, exercise, visit museums and be with family and friends. Is quite large, the museums are very good and not realize that we are in the middle of the city of São Paulo.

  • It is a good park on a day with nice weather. Beautiful trees with green and pink colors, convenient but not imposing stands selling coconut water, and you see many different couples picnicking there on a nice spot. It was a great place to visit for a few hours. The place is actually not that large. We walked the whole loop in about an hour, but it was a very enjoyable time.
  • Ibirapuera Park is a big and busy park. There's a lot of space to move around and a lot of people to see and meet. It is a bustling spot, where you will see people working out in the outdoor exercise frames, skateboarders whizzing past and hundreds of families having a good time. There are times when it is less busy and the park feels much more spacious. It is an ideal place to hang out and have a good time
  • A nice place to practice a great variety of sports, but also walk calmly. It is also a great place to take your dog for a walk. Your pet will be able to run free, exercise, and socialize with other dogs. You will also find a planetarium there, with presentations for all ages. The only problem I see is that the park is very crowded during weekends, and it makes it difficult to park on the premises. I recommend you to go by Cabify or public transportation.
  • Ibirapuera Park was so enjoyable. The park is so large and is such a good escape from the crazy busyness of the rest of the city. There are lots of great paths for running or walking and there are bike rentals at the gate that give you a great way to explore the beautiful park and get in some exercise.
  • A nice way to cycle and get some fresh air. I only put four stars as I have been to better parks. Nice place to walk relax, eat or chase pokemon it seems.
