Wonderful park in the middle of the city. Very relaxing for a jog with well marked tracks. The park has restaurants and lakes with wildlife (capybaras) walking around ... very safe and family oriented and a lovely place to spend a day over the weekend.

We walked to the park from out hotel and took all of Curitiba in. The park was beautiful, the lake was huge with a walking, jogging and bike track all incorporated which helped with all the traffic there. We visited while the world cup was on so it was quite busy. There is a convention center there as well that... More

This is the best and biggest park in Curitiba. There are lakes, trees and jogging track. Usually gets crowded on Sundays, as many people go for a walk or to have some picnic. There is also an convention center that usually has gastronomical fairs.

Wonderful green area near by the city, with a very large tracking area allowing people to jogging, walking or biking.

We visited Parque Tangua, Jardim Botanica and Parque Barigui, and this was best. Many locals were making use of the park, running, cycling, playing soccer, roller blading or just relaxing. There is a lake in the middle. Views are beautiful. Capybaras, the biggest rodents in the world, except for Uraguayan soccer player) are on the edges of the lake. There... More

I was visiting this park shortly after two days of heavy rains here in Curitiba. The park was completely under water, it was not even possible to walk around this pond in the middle of the park. You may see many Capybaras in the park. I think the park maybe quite relaxing during summer and in nice days, but I... More

This is the best park in Curitiba. There are some outsite fitness spaces, developed specially to elder people, but usable by anyone. The cooper lanes are wide (circuits with 2 - 3 miles) and the little lake in the middle of the park makes the air feel softer, less dry than usual. Try to avoid weekend afternoons, when the park...

This is the closest thing to Central Park in Curitiba - a big urban park with ponds, bike paths (though you can't find them for rental), dog walking and a little bit of wild life (plenty of "capivaras", the biggest rodent in the world). This is not the prettiest park on the city in my opinion ("Tanguá" and "Universidade Livre... More
