Parque Ibirapuera, Sao Paulo

Must see · Park · Nature / Park
Home to various museums and monuments, Parque Ibirapuera 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.

  • Nice place to do exercise, two track option to run (3km, 6km). Best time to visit is early in the morning, less crowded. There's options to visit Museum and Planetarium too. Lovely place to site seeing.
  • Walking on a park is always good . Ibirapuera Park is very beautiful but it is huge and far away from the tube station. Prepare yourself for a long walk with many attractions including the Contemporary Art Museum. It is for free and there is a restaurant at the top with nice views of Sao Paulo
