It's the most traditional park in the city. Exists since 1807 and changed constantly over the years. Is the place every citizen knows in Porto Alegre. It's not gorgeous (or even dazling) but it's the most visited place in town in the weekends. It's a good place to see how people are here. It has a flea market on sundays... More

A traditional gathering point, the most enjoyable park in town, right in the middle of it. With large tree coverage, provides a good shade during summer and winter alike, when boat rides on the like are more enjoyable. A food market takes place on one of its sides on Saturday mornings and a handicraft market on Saturdays. Avoid it at... More

The park has many different attractions, with structures paying hommage to many different cultures. Beautiful to walk in on a sunny day, though it doesn't offer many options on a rainy one. On Saturday mornings you can find an organic market on its southeast side, and an antiquity/hand-crafts market on the same place on Satudays and Sundays. It isn't very... More

This is a classic place to go on sundays. There is a multi fair to buy food, hand made products, listen to street bands, ride a bike... it's a great activity. Its a tradicional place for locals and you can go alone, with family or friends, because its an open place: to everyone do everything.

It's a very beautiful place in the very heart of the city. Farroupilha Park (the so-called Redenção) is a nice place to go in winter time, unless you like huge crowds and loud noise. Bordering the park, on saturday's morning there is a food market very well-known. For those who like to take a stroll, watch lots of people and... More

Large green lung surrounded by noisy main roads, a real place to relax, make a walk. Many old trees give you the impression, you are in a forest outside town. You can rent a "swan" pedal boat on the beautiful lake.

One of the most beautiful parks in town. Many people meet on weekends, drinking "chimarrao", which is a kind of (traditional) tea. Local handcraft is found on weekends. There are bikes for rent. This place should be avoided in the night, due to violence, drugs and sex.

Very good place for runnig, jogging or just walk around. Do not go late in the afternoon during weekends, too crowed, and also dangerous due to thiefing.
