    Rafael in Ibirapuera Park by PV

    It is a huge park, full of trees, paths and gardens, that is the best way for the PAULISTANOS to escape a littel from the busy life of the big city!

    I usually go there to fool around the trees and simply playing like a kid;)

    A GREEN PIECE OF SAO PAULO

    Strike a pose!!! HAHAHAHA

    The place is Ibirapuera, I usually go there before big events when I am in São Paulo, and that day was very important because I was applying for the second time the canadian visa.

    That day I got it, so thanks to that day I could spend one of the most important months of my life in Canada!;)

    This green space is worthy the visit, and you should go there if by chance you get in São Paulo city!

    Seek and Hide - S��o Paulo has a cheerful side!

    No time for stress, no time to be sad...Here I was in one of the most important moments in my life, I was waiting the time of my interview for my canadian visa, in the Council of Canada in Brooklyn, São Paulo, but me and Pierre decided to have fun!

    POSITIVE ATTITUDE FOR EVERYTHING!;)

    Ibirapuera Park with the obelisc in background.

    is one of the best days to be in the Ibirapuera Park.

    Occasionally you meet your friends during some of the morning music concerts presented there.

    Or you can only go there for a walk, some jogging, cycling, skating, or just for beeing there... it is all you need.

    Lake

    That's the place where people from Sao Paulo can scape from the busy and crazy city...it's great for picnics, jogging, walks, sunbathing, cycling and other sports. The scenery is very beautiful, and the atmosphere is relaxing. For adults, children, dogs, it's just perfect.

    Bike in the parc !! Du velo dans le parc !!

    by Maillekeul Written Jan 30, 2004

    OK, the parque do Ibirapuera is huge, and it's nice to wander around, walking... But if you have no time, rent a bike at the entrance (3 reales an hour - 1 USD for one hour) and ride as fast as you can !!

    OK, le parque do Ibirapuera est enorme, et c'est sympa de s'y balader a pied.. Mais si vous n'avez pas le temps, louez un velo a l'entree (3 reals de l'heure, soit 1 USD) et roulez aussi vite que vous pouvez !!

    Parque Ibirapuera - Ibirapuera Park
    Very nice atmosphere and nature, pleasant lake and enough room to practise whatever sports you want (except for the snow-based ones, of course). They often promote some very good and free concerts there. Check it out!

    when the urban jungle is wearing you down and you feel in the mood to see hints of green and chase baby ducks, head here! there's a crazy wonderful selection of museums on its premises, but of course I came on the day of the week when they were closed (drrr--but we can never plan breakdowns, can we?). it's far away from the subway, like most things in SP, so wimp out & take a taxi or ride the bus. I saw a giant louise bourgeois sculpture through one of the museum windows and wished sorely I had come on a better day. You can rent a bicycle and go round and round the park, which seems to be full of trees and lots of taut genetically perfect barbie doll types.

Some of the many delightful features included in this wonderful park are four lakes, a plant nursery, a Japanese pavilion, the Planetarium, the Folklore Museum and art museums, including the oldest museum of modern art in the country, the Marquise of Ibirapuera Park.

    Stop by Ibirapuera park on a free afternoon, or night if you aren't afraid of being in a big city part after dark.
    Ibirapuera is São Paulo's largest park, designed by Oscar Niemeyer and Roberto Burle Marx. There are several things to do and see in the park like the Japanese Pavilion.
    the pavilion was uilt in Japan and reassembled at Ibirapuera. There are many interconnected lakes and lots of water fowl. Sao Paulo's planetarium is housed in the park.

    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.
