Fee: Yes
Recommended length of visit: 1-2 hours
Owner description: Calm, green and refreshing, the city's botanical garden, situated inside the immense Parque Estadual Fontes do Ipiranga (PEFI) on the south side of town, provides a beautifully appointed sanctuary for thousands of tropical plant and animal species. The garden opened in 1938 to preserve part of the remaining Atlantic coastal forest, and it functions as a research facility focusing on Brazilian flora and fauna. The garden also shelters the source of the Rio Ipiranga, which figures heavily into national patriotic lore.

Great place to have a picnic with your family or friends!
People came to take pictures all the time (like wedding books or pregnant women). It have a good restaurant inside, and some exhibitions of insects and plants.

It' s a great place, very relaxing. But, there is some problems, that in my personal point of vue, make the place a little less beautiful from what we expect.
The place is huge, but seems left of, it could be better , he just need a little "lifting" , a little more attention for some details: make the garden a little more colorful or putting nice rocks on the ground.

I visited the gardens with a very special local friend of mine a couple of years ago and found it a great location to get away from the big city of Sao Paulo.
The park was well kept and safe and suitable facilities for all your needs.
Take a blanket and a book and lay on the grass and absorb the surroundings and sounds of the park.
I highly recommend the park, with someone special it makes for a great relaxing day.

The garden itself is amazing but my favourite attraction is watching the monkeys on the back part of the garden. The sound they make is both frightening and delighting! Kids also love to have some space to run around.
