A large oasis in the centre of town that gives plenty of space to escape into the shade on a hot sumners day. I was there on a quiet Monday so nothing going on, but l heard more happens at the weekends. Large lake where you can hire a swan pedalo, large fountain feature. Old park that is well over... More

It's quite a big park, safe (not so much on weekdays though) and has a lot of attractions. There's a small amusement park, an open air gym (appreciated by elderly), a lake, an organic food market on Saturdays and a nice market on Saturdays and Sundays with art, craft, souvenirs... It's a place for all ages and many different activities.... More

The park is really big and you can go either with friends or your family, sometimes (I guess, not sure about the dates) you have a little market on the street

It's a park and there really isn't a lot to do there. There are a couple of things to see and in one corner there is some sort of club where old men were playing a game that i didn't recognise, but after walking around this park for an hour i got bored and left. Maybe, i'm just miserable, but... More

Best park in the city! Located in the heart of the city, very central and near to great neighborhoods like Cidade Baixa e Bom Fim. Perfect for walk or lay down on the grass. Don't miss the churros with 'doce de leite'! Flea market on sundays.

I walked around this park with my one-year-old daughter for the better part of an afternoon last week, and we really enjoyed it. The park is really big and completely open and flat, with a number of natural dirt trails and a few concrete ones. There were a number of older folks and families sitting on benches, as well as...

Great park with lots of young people. Those who can't speak Portugese, make sure you point the park out in a map to the taxi driver as there is more than one mark named 'Farroupilha' so the taxi driver may get confused!

with many trees and plants, it is a good option for spending a couple of hours relaxing or doing some exercise. There are also many benches for those who want to rest or take a nap. Although it is not a dangerous place, one should avoid being isolated, particularly after sunset.

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
