I have visited this park several times and it´s always nice going back. You have bike rental options (great bikes in excelent conditions), nice activities over trees and trails for great views. There is also a good restaurant and a snack bar.

I loved the views, the waterstreams. I just couldn't believe how much infrastructure it lacks. Many plants are dead, the bathrooms are poor. The café is not that clean. If you are taking kids, make sure to being along bottled water, snacks, lots of sanitizing wipes. Still, worth the visit. There is zipline, bike rentals, nice trails.

Nice place to spend a day. Many places to visit and a wonderful view with many tracks to walk in. On the way to the Horto Florestal there is also some places worth to being visited.

This is a must if you like the outdoors. We were able to complete only one trail and it was tough but doable. The foliage and wildlife was wonderful. There are activities as well for all ages including a train ride and a playground. There are snacks and drinks available. Well worth the trip.

This is a great place to experience the Araukaria forests which once were widespread in the area. I guess most of the trails are pretty easy to walk and not very lengthy - ours was about 2 hours long and very well marked. We saw loads of butterflies (many more kinds than at the nearby butterfly sanctuary!) and various birds... More

Veri nice place! Very we'll organized! We were surprised how good was the restaurant inside the park (near the "train" station). We asked for a veggie plate and got a great hot plate with grilled veggies, rice, feijao and vegetarian farofa (typical Brazilian food). Great day outdoor! Cons: skip the trAin tour and go walking. With the train u see... More

The walk to the waterfall took us more then one hour even we took the bicycles (I was not used for the mountain bike, it took some time to maneuver it). The nature is pretty, the waterfall is not really big but beautiful. The place has 4 different tracks, which differ by the difficulty and length. The place has parking,... More

A wonderful place to get in touch with nature. Even for those with limited mobility it is a haven full of greenery and fauna. We were very fortunate to come across a family of 7 capybaras who permitted us to spend a full half hour watching them grazing and photographing them - even the little ones. What a special treat!

At the Horto you have the opportunity to see birds and other wild beautiful animals, practice some "extreme" sports, always in touch with nature. It is the best place to go by bike. Really great!
