Embarked on a boat trip on the river and decided to have lunch. The tour lasts an hour and the scenery is interesting. You can see some beautiful villas along the river. The lunch was good

This park (except on Sundays) is a calm place to enjoy a green space in the middle of one of Porto Alegre's fancyest neighbourhoods. It is a good place for relaxing where friends go to enjoy a typical chimarrão. It is also a good place for short runs or walks. Kids have a nice playground. There's plenty of spots of... More

A pleasant park to walk. Had a good time, taking nice pictures, watching people practicing sports, etc. A small park, but silent and beautiful. Recommended.

It is not a huge park, it is central. Excellent for a walk and meet friends just for loosing time with pleasure, summer and winter does not matter.

We stopped in Porto Allege as part of a cruise from Buenos Aires to Rio. The only reason I can imagine the ship docked here was so they could sell pricey excursions, because the town had no redeeming characteristics whatsoever.

Very well located, in the middle of the porchest area of Porto Alegre. Nice for a walk and run. Nice routes in the middle of the trees. Sometimes it is very crowded, specially during the weekends.

When in Porto Alegre take some time to visit the Moinhos de Vento Park, also known as "parcão' (= Big Park). Plenty of people exercising, families playing with their children, lots of good looking people and right in the middle of one of the best neighborhoods in Porto Alegre, the Moinhos de Vento area, with its restaurants, pubs, cafeterias and...

It was interesting that this was one of the most highly rated attractions in Porto Alegre on TripAdvisor. One would not usually expect to see a city park in this position. To be honest, this relatively small park was not anything unusual to see from the perspective of a tourist. On the other hand, I can see the allure of... More
