Santos Dumont Park
Apr 2020
The Santos Dumont Park near to the downtown area of São José dos Campos in São Paulo is a tranquil place, wooded and there are many activities placed around all the place. For the kids exists a huge playground, but if you wish to exercise youself you can run in the running track or use the outdoor gym equipments and for those who want to relax there is a beutiful japanese garden and a big lake in the middle. Also,if you enjoy radical sports you can go to the skate-lane, last but not least it's a must-see the 14-BIS monument, a tribute to the national aviator Santos Dumont. In general its a nice, family friendly and safe place, perfect to make a picnic with friends and family.

Good green area in downtown.
Feb 2020
Very nice and quite area to stay, walk, run or ply with kids. There is a replica of 14 Bis airplane made by Brazilian Santos Dumont that is considered for us the father of aviation and also a Bandeirante airplane made by Embraer.
There is not allowed any kind of pets, therefore it's still being a good place to enjoy a summer or spring day.

I love this park because it has a good place to do running and it also has a diverse playground for the kids. With easy location this park is very famous on Sundays.

The best park for the kids
Jan 2016 • Family
I've been at this park for 15 years bringing my both kids to play here.
As they have 10 years age difference but now the older play with the small one.
Of course the City Hall should improve the maintenance of the park specially the small parks areas (4 in total) for the kids.

Also some friends they exercise here as well like jogging or running.

I do recommend here after a Saturday's breakfast or brunch at the MD Bread store, "Padaria MD", just 100 meters ahead but on the right side of the road as it is much better then the other one in the MD front door (Pao de Queijo Padaria).
Enjoy the park with the kids.

Extremely Nice Park, with a Touch of Aviation History
Jun 2015 • Friends
Named after the Brazilian Pioneer Santos Dumont, the park is large, with a pond in the middle. There are different areas catering for different groups of people - skateboading area, exercising path, exercising corner, sitting and relaxing area, etc. There is an old Bandeirante aircraft placed inside the park, as well as a 1:1 scale replica of the 14-bis.

The park itself was clean and well maintained. Perfect for exercising, jogging, or simply spending some time to relax away from work!

Lovely place to spend a lazy afternoon !
Jun 2015
This is a nice public park, with good facilities to take a nice walk. It has a good children's play area, and many clean benches for people to sit and enjoy a book on a lazy afternoon. Its not too much overcrowded, except on weekends (which is quite understandable). The best part is ythat it has an exercise area with many implements that one can use.

Not so big but nice place for to have a walk and to have a rest. Nice the idea to place some planes and missiles in oder to celebrate one of the biggest pioneer of the human flight.

Ideal recreation area
Sep 2014 • Family
This park is one of the few in Central São José and is an excellent area for walking, exercising, taking the kids, or just for some recreation.

The park is enclosed with a metal railing, and there are guards at both entrances to minimise the entrance of anyone considered problematic. So you can enjoy the park without any worries of assault or any other inconvenience.

There are a couple of planes in the park - one is a replica of 14 Bis, in which Santos Dumont performed the first officially witnessed unaided takeoff and flight by a heavier-than-air aircraft; and the other is one of the first three prototype Bandeirante aircraft. By the way, I used to fly in this same plane when I worked for INPE in 1972-73, working as a false-colour aerial photographer.

There is plenty of shade from the trees, and the temperature inside the park is usually agreeable for most of the year.

A model for other parks
Dec 2013 • Couples
Santos Dumont Park is great for everybody. A park with a lot of energy. It's huge and well divided. There's a great area for kids, they can have a lot of fun over there. In the same park, an area for couples, very quiet and beautiful. And other areas for groups where they can play instruments, have a picnic, chat...
Con: It's not open at night.
Hint: Go to SESC, right beside it.
