Create an itinerary including Parque Barigui
Besides refuge for animals, Parque Barigui is also a natural preservation area within the city limits that offers many activities and opportunities to connect with the locals. You and your family can stay active with amenities including fitness equipment, paddle boats, playing fields, trails, skating rink, and a BMX track. An onsite bistro serves lunch and dinner, or you can cook your own food at one of the park's grills. The native forest surrounding the lake (formed by a dam) is rich in flora and fauna, like orchids and 200 species of birds.

As you approach the lake, you may catch a glimpse of the Barigüi alligator who sunbathes on the lake's shore--but there's no need to worry because this reptile has never bothered any visitors during its lifetime in the park. The grounds provide a home for the Automobile Museum, a Steam Train Station, an exhibition park, an amusement park, and a helipad where you can charter a lift in a helicopter.

  • We chose the neighborhood due to the proximity to the park, so we could enjoy a feeling of having somewhere to exercise outdoors. Couldn’t be happier.

  • Love this Parque. You would not know you're in the middle of a busy city. Lovely space to chill or have lunch. To cycle, walk, skate, do Yoga, meditation, it's family friendly and has space for fitness work out.
  • One of the best parks in Curitiba! Huge park with lots of shady spots, exercise equipment, and best of all, capybaras quietly eating and swimming all over. Busy of the weekends but always worth a trip!
