It´s a lovely place to relax and exercise as well. The lake is beautiful, there are paddles one can enjoy with kids and some couples do enjoy it too. There are table for picnic and many families make use of that.

On Sundays they close the roads around Parque Taquaral for sports. Great place for running, walking, or do any outdoor activities.

Used to be a great place, but unfortulately Capivaras are in the area becoming not healthy for the people.

It's beautiful municipal park to make your 5k training. Just put your soundtrack and after a quick warmup, just start running on its outer ring. You will see how citizens of Campinas city enjoy walking or running on this park while sightseeing some nice places.

Best park in town to go for a walk, jogging, cycling. There is a gymnasium and they always have Volleyball games. On sundays the streets around the park are closed for cars making it a great place for a walk with kids.

Parque Portugal known as Lagoa is one of the oldest city parks. Many sports options, good place to hunt Pokémons, and Just outside its doorways, many food options. Simple, bug honest. The old electric train that you can use to ride the park worths the visit.

The place is amazing, great and with a lot of potential, but the mayor isn't a guy with vision, some places are too open with less trees which should have and other places too close by fences, but the place is still great to walk and to be in love.

This is one of the main leisure areas in Campinas. Suitable for fitness or just a stroll around inside or outside. You can get a ride on pedal boats and on weekends ride on an old tram. Suitable for families. Good to observe also the Olympic famous capibaras. There's a lot of them there.
