A good place to spend a weekend afternoon and meet friends, but not a particularly nice park. It's the best thing Porto Alegre has to offer outdoors and locals seem to love it, but it lacks safety and is not as beautiful as it might appear when people talk about it.

This park is just great! It shows the different ways of enjoy the city. Live music, waking the dogs and actually taking them to socialise with others, cafes, chill under a tree drinking chimarrão, organic market on Saturdays and the city most famous flea market. During the day is normally pretty safe to be there, but wouldn't risk it at... More

This is probably POA's most famous park. It is a really fun place to go and relax. You really get to see southern Brazilian culture here. It is very safe during the day.

Nice park, could be a bit cleaner though. My husband and I have walked it many times during out visit to Porto Alegre. There is a dog park inside of it and many people bring their dogs to play. I recommend it as a place to sit and have a picnic

Did a bit of a walkabout at the park. There is a large pond/lake that has paddleboats, which were all tied up. There was another pond/moat with fountains that was in disrepair. There were also numerous homeless persons occupying on benches. There are many walking/running paths through the beautiful trees. It is a nice park, but needs some TLC. The... More

There is everything! Soccer field and athletics track, a playgroung with lots of toys for all ages, amid varied vegetation, several lakes and crannies (my favorite is the east), some have fountains being one of them, endowed with game lights that, when it works, it's beautiful. One of the larger lakes has paddleboats. Bicycles can be rented. There is a... More

They have the potential to make this a nice place. But I guess the prefecture just dont want to bother. I think security is my main concern. You have better places to go
