“Quiet Park in the middle of the city”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 14, 2014

Great park with lots of young people. Those who can't speak Portugese, make sure you point the park out in a map to the taxi driver as there is more than one mark named 'Farroupilha' so the taxi driver may get confused!

“A very nice place to walk or relax”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 1, 2014

with many trees and plants, it is a good option for spending a couple of hours relaxing or doing some exercise. There are also many benches for those who want to rest or take a nap. Although it is not a dangerous place, one should avoid being isolated, particularly after sunset.

“The green heart of the city”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 12, 2014

It's the most traditional park in the city. Exists since 1807 and changed constantly over the years. Is the place every citizen knows in Porto Alegre. It's not gorgeous (or even dazling) but it's the most visited place in town in the weekends. It's a good place to see how people are here. It has a flea market on sundays and a veggie market on saturdays. There are some restaurants and coffee shops around.

“Best park in town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 2, 2014

A traditional gathering point, the most enjoyable park in town, right in the middle of it. With large tree coverage, provides a good shade during summer and winter alike, when boat rides on the like are more enjoyable. A food market takes place on one of its sides on Saturday mornings and a handicraft market on Saturdays. Avoid it at night, it's not safe.

“A very popular place on weekends”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 12, 2013

The park has many different attractions, with structures paying hommage to many different cultures. Beautiful to walk in on a sunny day, though it doesn't offer many options on a rainy one. On Saturday mornings you can find an organic market on its southeast side, and an antiquity/hand-crafts market on the same place on Satudays and Sundays. It isn't very clean if you stray from the main trails. It offers a small amusement park for children, a few small lakes and ponds, including one with a paddle-boat ride and good restaurants on its eastmost tip. Also on weekends afternoon there are usually many cultural manifestations happening.
