This is a nice public park, with good facilities to take a nice walk. It has a good children's play area, and many clean benches for people to sit and enjoy a book on a lazy afternoon. Its not too much overcrowded, except on weekends (which is quite understandable). The best part is ythat it has an exercise area with many implements that one can use.

Not so big but nice place for to have a walk and to have a rest. Nice the idea to place some planes and missiles in oder to celebrate one of the biggest pioneer of the human flight.

This park is one of the few in Central São José and is an excellent area for walking, exercising, taking the kids, or just for some recreation.

The park is enclosed with a metal railing, and there are guards at both entrances to minimise the entrance of anyone considered problematic. So you can enjoy the park without any worries of assault or any other inconvenience.

There are a couple of planes in the park - one is a replica of 14 Bis, in which Santos Dumont performed the first officially witnessed unaided takeoff and flight by a heavier-than-air aircraft; and the other is one of the first three prototype Bandeirante aircraft. By the way, I used to fly in this same plane when I worked for INPE in 1972-73, working as a false-colour aerial photographer.

There is plenty of shade from the trees, and the temperature inside the park is usually agreeable for most of the year.

Santos Dumont Park is great for everybody. A park with a lot of energy. It's huge and well divided. There's a great area for kids, they can have a lot of fun over there. In the same park, an area for couples, very quiet and beautiful. And other areas for groups where they can play instruments, have a picnic, chat...
Con: It's not open at night.
Hint: Go to SESC, right beside it.
