  • Leisure option in the southern area of São Paulo, next to the Museu do Ipiranga. Place of historical importance to the country.

  • The Park is nice, although simple. Has a huge slope for those who enjoy a skate or bearings, also features the monument of independence with the remains of Dom Pedro and Leopoldina, in addition to a Wattle. In the upper part of the garden of the Museum worth a visit and some pictures.

  • This Park is wonderful, charming. Even with the Museum closed it is possible to have access to an important part of our history. The ride is pleasant. Is very worthwhile. HOWEVER, it shows a certain disregard for the site. Some points have mato alto, dirt, and near the monument to groups of young people smoking and drinking.

  • This a best full place, and have the most importa history of Brazil, near the edge of the river Ipiranga where Dom Pedro have said “ independence or dying” and this the museum in this moment are closed because reconstruction/reorganization of the place where the statue and square are saved
  • One of the most beautiful places in the city! Not as crowded as Ibirapuera or Paulista, but harder to get to... The historic landmark where Dom Pedro II declared Brazil's I from Portugal and home to USP's history museum (under long-term renovations for several more years), it's definitely worth the long-ish trip to Ipiranga to see the beautiful garden on a sunny São Paulo weekend. One of the best places in the city for skateboarding, with plenty of space to spread out for a picnic or sunbathing. Don't miss the Museum Food Truck park at the south end, across the street from the museum - live music, good variety of food, beer, bathrooms, and family and pet friendly. Not the easiest to get to - metro or taxi - but traffic will make it feel further than it is.
  • This is an amazing place, with beautiful trees and great epic architecture. In addition, you can run and walk on the lane and leave the child's plays in the park.
  • Nice place to go! But the museum's closed.
  • Nice museum if you wanna know about Brazil's history thats the place
