This is another famous park in Porto Alegre, located in a very affluent (and expensive) area of the city. It has a good green and vibrant atmosphere, with your regular day-to-day jogger and serious trainees.

This park is based near Muinos de Ventos, a pleasant, slightly upmarket area of Porto Alegre. As such, it is safe and pleasant for a stroll or seat to watch the world go by. There is an ecological library for children, a play area, a...More

A lovely park compared to others in Porto Alegre but still in need of better care and landscaping. It’s only good because the others are so bad. It could be so much more.

Quiet and cozy, in an excellent area. Nice walk with pubs, fancy stores and coffee shops. Worth taking an afternoon or early evening for a nice walk.

Regularly, locals exercise here, so it's a nice spot to relax a bit. But it's a small park, so, not much to see other than the turtles and birds by the lake. It's a good place to drink chimarrão as locals do.

This was the jockey and then an empty field where there were two football pitches where I played when I was young. Now, it is gorgeous park with lots of people walking, running and playing sports in daylight hours, not very big but quite nice.
