Very unexpected park in the city. As you walk along, you read the story of Hansel and Gretal, otherwise known as Joaozinho e Maria. There are a lot of steps as you make your way down, remember that you must climb back up!!

Nice jungle, lovely flowers and birds. Children will enjoy the fairy tale atmosphere with pictures and a real witch that will help you overcome the fear of witches

explore the fairytale of hansel and grettel on a pretty path through a bit of rainforest and visit the cute little witches house and let her read some stories. go back to the german facade and get yourself a piece of delish cake, home made and enjoy the view.

Very nice environment, with pathways, tracks, wooden bridges and scenic views. There is a small house where a witch tells kids some stories. Don't miss it, specially if you have small children, but if you don't, consider going there for the nature and the peace.

On first appesrances this is just a nice looking old building but if you walk around and se the water feature steps and the wooden walkway you get great views over some of Curitiba and all the green spaces and trees. Nice little picture stop and in a quiet area.

If you start from the bottom (the gate) towards the top (Bach's oratorium), you can read (or based on pictures imagine, since it is in portugese) a Hensen and Gretzen story. It is well worth taking a short walk through the forest (that looks deep indeed) also for the adults and at the end enjoying a view from the tower.... More

A very pretty park where you walk around a small forest with small posters telling you the story of Hansel and Gretel. It's also got a nice portal and a beautiful view of the city. I haven't been there in a while, but there used to be a very nice place to eat cakes and pies on the upper part... More
