Best spot for outdoor activities! Biking, hiking, walking, skating, you choose. A very good atmosphere for sports and the place is fantastic! Great to be in touch with nature!

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.

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

Parque Barigui is the nicest and bigest park of the city and specially during the weekend a lot of people go there to walk, run, ride bike, skate and so on. For me Is the beach that the city does not have.

We visited Curitiba for a weekend. Since we wanted to go running we went to the park on Sunday morning. It has a very nice 5.3km track, with every 50 meter distance written on the asfalt. Very nice view on the city as well. It was quite busy but not to busy. We enjoyed it.
