Running trails, bike paths, and yoga and capoeira sessions let locals and visitors alike keep fit, while a clutch of museums and galleries — such as the museums of Modern and Contemporary Art, all designed by master Brazilian architect Oscar Niemeyer — gives the brain a good workout. The impressive Museu Afro Brasil and fiery Auditório Ibirapuera are two of the park's treasures. « less

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

Still, with ample green space and the lively Villa Ambiental (Environmental Village) educational play space for kids, there's plenty for everyone in the family to enjoy. Bike rentals, jogging trails and coconut water vendors are but a few of the park's amenities. And it's sure to be less crowded than Ibirapuera any day. « less
