Owner description: The emerald heart of an oftentimes gray city, São Paulo's Parque do Ibirapuera offers respite from the urban madness among cool, shady trees and mentally-stimulating structures. Running trails, bike paths, and yoga and capoeira sessions let locals and visitors alike keep fit, while a clutch of museums and galleries — such as the museums of Modern and Contemporary Art, all designed by master Brazilian architect Oscar Niemeyer — gives the brain a good workout. The impressive Museu Afro Brasil and fiery Auditório Ibirapuera are two of the park's treasures.

“Amazing 16 lanes Flyover Crossing to IBIRAPUERA PARK”
Reviewed 18 July 2014

Its an excellent park to visit when you are in Sao Paulo and the crossing from my apartment in Vila Mariana ( a very middle class neighborhood) to the park was amazing. There is this amazing flyover crossing of a 16 lane motorway from Vila Mariana to Ibirapuera Park which is itself was awesome. There was heavy traffic at the time of my crossing at around 5:15pm and the traffic was just as heavy when I departed at around 8:30pm. My advice is to go by Metro to avoid the heavy traffic of São Paulo

The park is even more livelier in the night and I have never seen a busier park in the night in my life. People were jogging, strolling and they had this bike rentals which was very easy to rent for 1 hour at a cost of R$5 which is a bargain. I rented a bike for 1 hour and it was the most amazing bike ride in years. The weather was so cool and the breeze whilst reading was a bliss in the park.
I recommend this park highly and the amazing sixteen lanes was out of this world.

“Must see”
Reviewed 17 July 2014

Ok it's a park but it's a must see. Me and friend went jogging in the park, perfect experience, phenomenal weather and great trails. Beware of traffic, although huge the park is PACKED with people on Sundays so you slalom between people and expect a few close encounters with kids on skateboards or bycicles. Street vendors serve coconut water and sweets. Beautiful, green, good place for picnic. Not a whole lot of activities when we went otherwise but a great experience.

“Nice and huge park, so sunny”
Reviewed 15 July 2014

I knew from travelling guide that the park is big. However, I didn't think it's huge. I went to this place by Taxi. I spent around 3 hours walking happily in here.
