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.

  • Great place to gin on Sunday morning. Safe family/sport environment. Rent a bike is a nice option to enjoy the park area. A good escape in São Paulo

  • This park is massive and amazing.. I am currently living in the centre of São Paulo do this place really helps me disconnect from city live and it reminds me of the beauty of nature and slowing down.. I am sure you don't need more convincing but they have everything you need inside from bars and food. Definitely worth checking out
