“A tranquil place to get away from the city”

Parque Municipal Americo Renee Giannetti
Ranked #27 of 230 things to do in Belo Horizonte
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 6 July 2013

Open 6am to 6pm, closed Mondays. Free.
Not a place to go out of your way to see, but a nice place for a walk to get away from the bussle of the city. There are lots of things for young children to do, from free climbing frames to a small amusement park. There is a bigger lake in the park that has a kiosk with the basic ice creams, drinks and a few nibbles and you can hire row boats on the lake. Take some bread to feed the many fish in the lake. The park looks like it is going through a major cleanup, there were bins almost every 50m in every direction and mounted police were patroling the park as well as others on motorbikes. Visited on a Friday afternoon.

I would love to give it a high rating. A park in the middle of downtown, surrounded by buildings in one of the most (if not THE most) important avenues in the city... All seem so nice until you get there and see the real deal.
The park is dirty and not properly taken care of. Everyone will clearly see all the small problems on every turn. This makes what could be a great place (and, really, it is a well-made and build park) into a not-so-interesting thing.
My advice is to go see it and take a walk if you are nearby for some other reason, but not to make it a listed attraction on your plans. And I do hope that this place gets the appropriate care and treatment it deserves in the near future.

This park is reasonably quiet and provides an oasis of sorts from buzzing city traffic by virtue of its sheer size in the heart of Belo Horizonte. Wander the many paths around the lakes, past the children's carousels and odd colored exercise machines as you make your way from one gate to another. You can even rent a boat with oars to row around an island. If you are looking for inexpensive quality souvenirs of your visit to Minas Gerais the Centro de Artisansto Mineiro is located on one side of the park.

For families with kids this is the ideal park: parents can relax while the kids enjoy what the various attaractions (funfair, canoe pond, soccer pitch) have to offer.
Guards warn strangers about the risks of being robbed and advise them not to go too deep into the darker parts of the park. The taxi driver that took us back to the hotel gave similar advice.

It was so relaxing to walk around the park with other strollers and joggers. Its a great place to people watch on a Sunday afternoon.
