Attraction details
Reviewed July 2, 2013

I highly recommend this park if you're in town. If I ever made a top 5 list of places to visit, this would certainly be one of them. The park is huge and very well maintained. It is very enjoyable whether you just want to hang around or take a walk while sipping some coconut water.

The park is very big and the drive their from center of town takes you through some very nice neighborhoods. The park has some unique animals and the view of the city from where the park, high in the hills, is spectacular. There is a bus that takes you around the park if you are not up to doing a lot of walking. You can get on or exit the bus also it goes around the park so you can walk and then if you get tired you can hop on the bus. There also places for kids to play and volleyball, basketball and soccer courts to play at the park. The drive to the park and the park make it worth visiting

It's an important ecological park in Belo Horizonte. It's in the higher part of the city (the south). Then, it offers you nice views of the city. Moreover, there you'll have opportunity to walk a lot (with comfortable sneakers, because it's a quite hard walk) listening to birds and watching little animals. I think it's much better bringing your own food, since I don't rely on the food served there. Of course: BRING WATER as well! There are toilets and places to drink fresh water (free) in some points, but you never know how long will be your walk. Pay attention, there are not good indication of the ways and you can get lost (nothing very dangerous, but it can make you have to walk more). It's free! In the city centre, "avenida Afonso Pena" you can take the bus 4103. It takes you to the entrance of the park.

É o mais importante parque ecológico de BH. Como está na parte mais alta da cidade, oferece boa vista. É um bom lugar para caminhar, com tênis confortável, pq o caminho não é suave. Prefiro levar minha própria comida, pois não confio na que se serve lá. LEVE ÁGUA! Há banheiros e bebedouros em alguns lugares específicos, mas vc pode ter sede no meio do caminho. Fique antento. Não há boa indicação dos caminhos e vc pode se perder (nada perigoso demais, mas pode ter que andar mais). É grátis. Para ir de ônibus, tome o 4103 no centro, avenida Afonso Pena. Ele te leva à portaria do parque.

Nice park with all the amenities, but book the ridge walk online, only 15 persons per group, very nice. Spectacular views over Belo Horizonte, with a guide, excellent outing, at no cost.

Sun set is the best time to visit this place. A day picnic is also a good idea for this place. One can see the complete view of this big city from this park. many music concerts and activities arranged this place.
