The garden opened in 1938 to preserve part of the remaining Atlantic coastal forest, and it functions as a research facility focusing on Brazilian flora and fauna. The garden also shelters the source of the Rio Ipiranga, which figures heavily into national patriotic lore. « less

The botanical garden is located very southern part of the city. Although we live in the southern part of the city as well, it took a long time to reach the garden. We visited in September (spring), so didn't get to see much of the colorful flowers in bloom. A large pond with water lillies and bamboo walks, and micro... More

Lots of green gardens with a water pond. Nice for a walk in the nature and just relax seeing different kinds of plants and flowers. There is a restaurant buffet style that can complete your day at this place.

Although it is far from downtown, its beaty worth the it. Well kept tropical nature. A very calm place to walk, to take pictures and to appreciate different flowers and trees. Parking is not easy here and not cheap. Good for all ages.
