  • Excellent place to stroll with children but the nearby streets and the Park's own are controladas.por a real gang of caregivers of car under duress forced visitors to pay the fixed price already stipulated by a vacancy in public street!!!! DANGEROUS!!!

  • The Zoo of Sorocaba (official name "Quinzinho de Barros" Zoo) is a great option and leisure activities for adults and children, good surprise starts because the entry be FREE, that's right, don't charge anything. Despite being an indoor Zoo, is broader and with various animals of all sizes and types. In addition the Zoo of Sorocaba is very well maintained and clean. Unfortunately some species find themselves alone and confined to very limited space for your size ... is something that the Government should pay more attention to gradually go investing and improving for the sake of animals.
