It's a great place for relax, seize the sun and nature. Good for pictures, picnics, read a book laying in the grass. Also, it's a beautiful place for photoshoots!

It is a very pleasant park. Not really big, it has a lake with ducks and turtles and the visit of some other interesting birds. Good for going with children and with dogs. It has a modern illumination at night and holds some events, regularly.

We lived in an apartment over looking Moinhos de Vento Park and so enjoyed the view night and day. We spent lots of time enjoying the park, relaxing, reading a book, people watching. In the nice weather, on some weekends, there were food trucks in...More

This is another famous park in Porto Alegre, located in a very affluent (and expensive) area of the city. It has a good green and vibrant atmosphere, with your regular day-to-day jogger and serious trainees.

I have grown up going to this park. Today I took my 8yo son there. Still the same beautiful and huge park. Right in the heart of a well known neighborhood. Couples and young adult jogging, kids playing, others sitting enjoying the nature. Birds singing......More

A lovely park compared to others in Porto Alegre but still in need of better care and landscaping. It’s only good because the others are so bad. It could be so much more.

Quiet and cozy, in an excellent area. Nice walk with pubs, fancy stores and coffee shops. Worth taking an afternoon or early evening for a nice walk.

Regularly, locals exercise here, so it's a nice spot to relax a bit. But it's a small park, so, not much to see other than the turtles and birds by the lake. It's a good place to drink chimarrão as locals do.
