  • The Park is very beautiful, and is great for walking, shooting, skating and remember to enjoy the shaded trees in the surroundings of the Ipiranga Museum, which unfortunately is closed for renovations a few years ago.

  • Very nice Park. It is worth visiting. Has a biology annex Museum with free entry, see picture with the bear. Have groceries to buy and drink, I recommend take coconut water ($ 5) to hydrate. Always well filled. Park on the street is practically impossible on weekends, some paid parking lots in the area are the salvation.
