    Tiete River Bank Park

    by Lady_Disdain Written Feb 2, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Tiete River bank Park is great - wonderful trails, good picnic and barbecue areas, there is even row boats for rental.

    However, the Tiete River is very polluted and during hot, dry periods the park can have a very unpleasant smell.

    Sao Paulo Jardim Botanico

    by bearworm Written Nov 19, 2002

    Spend the afternoon at the botanical garden. Nice plan layout with a wilderness area, so you can see what Sao Paulo would look like if it was not covered in concrete.

    Take the Blue Line 1 subway to the end (Jabaquara), then jump in a cab. It's next to the zoo.

    The Parque do Ibirapuera, a large grassy area, is Sao Paulo's major public park. Its lake is a refreshing presence, and the park's monuments add a touch of solemnity. But, the planetarium is what sets the park apart.

    There is a poisonous animal park called Butãtã. Last time I was there it was a bit beat up looking. It would be worth a call to see if they've renovated the place. At the very least its a nice wooded area to stroll around in.
