“Just a park. Nothing special to do there...”
Reviewed November 19, 2011

The park is not very cleaned. The rides inside are all old and some of them have to be payed. It is not a best place to go with children, but I think it is one of the best in town. So, if you need to waste some time with kids, for running, getting tired, and things like that, you should go, but you must not expect much about the place.

“Don't waste your time”
Reviewed October 28, 2011

The park is very unkempt, would be a good option for walking but the place is dangerous with drug trafficking in daylight. When I walk on my first day in town I came across a police checkpoint because of a murder in the park the night before. keep away from this place.

“Wide range of attractions at Porto Alegre´s most interesting landmark.”
Reviewed October 8, 2011

The largest park in Porto Alegre offers attractions and entertainment for all tastes and ages. There are romantic places, gardens and a small but beautiful lake. There are toys and play areas for children, sports facilities, area for jogging, cultural landmarks and monuments. Moreover, a lively fair called "Brick da Redenção", which I consider the best attraction of Porto Alegre, takes place there on Sundays.

“Perfect for a sunny day !”
Reviewed September 28, 2011

This Park is perfect during a sunny day ! It is plenty of grass and green. Good for walk, jogging or just hang out.
You may see there the gaúchos having their traditional drink (Chimarrão), visit the Sunday Fair and the 2nd World War Monument. It is a nice place to take pics, located right in front of the Colégio Militar(Military School), a traditional and beatiful building of the city.
If you have kids, they may have a good time seeing fishes and turtles on the lake and riding a swan-shaped-boat called pedalinho.
On the other hand one should avoid the place at evening.

“All types of fun for all ages!”
Reviewed July 31, 2011

Farroupilha Park is a very large area in the middle of Porto Alegre and a very traditional place to go with family and friends. There's a mini zoo, an amusement park for children, areas for jogging, walking or running, or benches and green areas for just sitting down and watching people go by. On Sundays, there's a street market with antiques and handcraft. A great place to spend the day, especially if it's warm and sunny!
