Parque Portugal is built around Taquaral Lake and conveniently located near the downtown area in the city of Campinas, SP. The highlight for many patrons is the wide, hard-packed, dirt walkway circumventing the lake. Shaded by a ring of trees, some close to a century old, the road is swept almost daily and offers a magnificent place for walking/running. Geese and water fowl often adorn the lakeshore. The facility encompasses a variety of leisure options such as: pedal boats, children's playground, small amphitheater for community events, a working streetcar, in-door gymnasium, outdoor courts, outdoor swimming pool, and even a full-sized replica of an old Portuguese galleon ship! Access is free to the public as is parking in several lots scattered around the perimeter. If you are looking for a great place to get in your daily steps, look no further!

A park around a lake with several activities, ideal for families with children: park train, a big old ship, boating and several playgrounds. Around the lake green area with forest area good for walking or running Also several wild animals can be seen inthe park. Some stands offer drinks and food, also free fresh drinking water is available. I was impressed by the cleanlyness of the public toilets here!

They are trying to improve the park. The shops and kiosks outside are much better but they still need to invest a lot for me to be able to call it pleasant.

A great place to visit and spend 1-2h We spent the morning walking and snapping photos at this park. It's a very well looked after Park, with a little train that still runs around the old track and loads of super tall leafy trees, and rich fauna! We saw capybaras, angola hens, ducks, all sorts of birds, all wandering free and healthy within the park. In the middle of the lake this water-fountain "plays" classical music from loudspeakers around it. Beyond the fountain you can see the famous "Caravel" replica, built and launched in 1972, and recently refurbished in September 2018. This vessel is a replica of the "nau Anunciação" which bought Pedro Álvares Cabral to Brazil, in 1500. This is a must-see spot in Campinas!
