Good size park, very popular for running or walking. Mostly one street/track around the lake so not much "forest-like", more a big lake with a walkpath around it. A big ship and... read more

Traditional outdoor point for Campineiros of all ages. Personally I prefer the quieter and less crowded Parque Ecologico, but both are fine.

Locals call it by the name of the lake and not Portugal. So make your way to Taquaral for a morning run or an evening stroll. It is convenient, centrally located and the best place to stay active, walk or run. In the mornings and mid day it seems safe, not so sure about late evenings. So caution is always... More

From a simple walk in the park to a open air Zumba class, train ride. The park has many option for children and adults. Soccer, volleyball, baskette ball, skate, tennis, swimming pool, paddle boat, the list goes on and on... Because of the size and structure, it hosts a lot of important Cultural events like concerts, theater, street races, etc

Dirty, smelly, and not safety. Few friends had their bicycles stolen on the daylight. Inside had a lot of nice activities to do for all ages, soccer fields, gymnasium, etc but u have to pay attention on your staff and yourself all the time to not being robbed...

This is known as TAQUARAL. Is a nice park where you can walk arround, see some birds and other small animals. Recently it has opened a tipical "caravela". It is a replica of a big ship dated from 1500's that was used by portuguese people to discover Brazil. You go inside and have a nice view of the big lagoon.... More

If you are in Campinas, you should visit this spot: it's quiet and you will have some options to do like drink a coco water, walking, cycling or just sit and look around. traffic jam from 5pm to 8pm.

Seems like a nice walking trail , liked the swan boats but won't allow pets or cyclists. And of course the park across the street that does allow pets has prominent tick risk signs at the entrance
