“A local institution”
Reviewed December 12, 2012

Locals and tourists enjoy this big park, particularly during the day on weekends. I spent a Saturday morning there with some friends who live in Porto Alegre. There are some nice restaurants nearby. There is also a sort of flea market / crafts fair ("Brique"), which is a favorite among locals. Like others said, I would avoid going there at night, but if you go to Porto Alegre, do as locals do and take a stroll around this large public park on a Saturday and enjoy the sights.

“Nice to people watch”
Reviewed September 23, 2012 via mobile

Big park in the city. Take a walk round or just sit with a drink and watch the world pass by. Tourists and natives alike do enjoy spending hours here.

“Worth a look”
Reviewed August 27, 2012

This park is nice for an afternoon out in the sun- very pretty spot in the city. There is a lake in the middle with swan boats. Take a book and relax, or stroll around.

“Traditional place”
Reviewed May 6, 2012

If you want to experience the typical life of a portoalegrense you should visit this park in a weekend, where you will see people enjoying a chimarrão, walking their dogs, practicing sports, or just taking a nap by the trees.

But never ever go there at night. It's not safe.
