This is a nice shady garden with paths, benches, and ponds. There were several photography sessions going on the day we went, otherwise not many people around.

A big variety of trees and plants, most of them properly tagged and named. A beautiful part with pine trees and several varieties Auracarias. The natural history museum is located in the park and has free entrance. They have some very old local dinosaurs on display and show some local wildlife. Several parts where closed (medicinal garden, orchid house) but the park itself provided us plenty of space to enjoy ourselves for at least 4-5 hours. The lunchroom has a lot of juices to offer. Interesting birds where cuckoo, Jasana (lily trotter), and other water birds. There where some big lizards and a lot of turtles (at least three species). Definitely a place worth visiting

for those of us from coming North America, this was an awesome place to visit. A totally different world. I am nit sure I recognized any of the exotic plants. There is no printer material in other than Portuguese, and the staff didn't speak English, but we attentive and helpful. We wandered the grounds on our own. Exotic and colorful. On a bus route.

As just a park it is quite good, lots of green and a nice lake with turtles. But as a botanical garden I expect a lot more structure, there were no labels on the trees or plants which would tell us what is what, the only map of the park is more of a cartoon so things are not drawn accurately. It is indeed clean and the entrance fee is very cheap. I would recommend it if you want to get out of the busy city and just be in the nature for a while.
