Nicknamed "Parcão", it is a very beautiful spot in Porto Alegre, located in the most famous and sophisticated neighbourhood of the capital of Rio Grande do Sul State. It´s a special entertainment place to adults and children. It has also become a place of political manifestation in this year of 2016.

Locals name this place "Parcão", and it's great for sunbathing, jogging, dogwalking, taking a stroll, bring your kids or exercise. I, myself, like to bring a book and sit on the sun after work. The view is awesome and you have plenty of dinner options nearby.

It seem to be very nice park. Could see lot of people around. There were many children playing so should be sade for family activities. There is a restaurant nearby named Habibs. The staff was cooperative and helped us choose the vegeterian options.

The park is small and there is some "toys" for kids. Around the park there are many restaurants. I recommend only if you have time and if you enjoy walking in green areas.

This is one of the few open air spots of the city. Good to enjoy during the weekend, where you'll find a lot of beautiful people.

Nice park to go with family and friends to spend the day. Whether on a business or leisure trip, it is a must-go place in Porto Alegre. It has nice grassy areas to lay down and chill, a running/walking track under the trees, and a great playground for the kids, including a zipline for the little ones.
