“always something to see”
Reviewed May 13, 2012

I've been three times and I love that each time is distinct. The walking is good and the free concerts have all been enjoyable. The small restaurant on site is nothing special.

“Nice park, but beware the quatis”
Reviewed March 10, 2012

Belo Horizonte is a nice place to live, but does not have much touristic interest, except as a base for visiting the nearby historic cities. But if you are there for some reason and have some free time, Parque das Mangabeiras is probably the best public place to relax. If you plan to picnic there, as many locals do, beware the quatis, a relative of the raccoon, without the masks. They roam the park in large packs, and are accomplished food thieves.

“Peace and Nature”
Reviewed February 28, 2012

This place is unique. The air is pure, lots of trees, animals, and quite a view from it's lookout, on the top of the park. Good to get in touch with the nature. Prepare to walk. Don't use shoes with thin shoe sole, because the roads are paved with pointy cobblestones. Take some bread to throw to squirrels, little monkeys and nasuas.
