The emerald heart of an oftentimes gray city, São Paulo's Parque do Ibirapuera offers respite from the urban madness among cool, shady trees and mentally-stimulating structures. Running trails, bike paths, and yoga and capoeira sessions let locals and visitors alike keep fit, while a clutch of museums and galleries — such as the museums of Modern and Contemporary Art, all designed by master Brazilian architect Oscar Niemeyer — gives the brain a good workout. The impressive Museu Afro Brasil and fiery Auditório Ibirapuera are two of the park's treasures.

If you really wanna undertand the mindset of the sao paulo's population, Ibirapuera park it's the place to do it. That's our most valuable space to chill, exercise, meet people, sing, play guitar, do art and so on and on. Better visitting at summer and springtime

Wonderful to visit during the day, but be sure to come here late afternoon and early evening workout with hordes of Brazilians. Be caught up in their energy and amazed at the culture of sports and nature in this city of business and concrete.

The central park of Sao Paulo, the views of the lake and the simple number of people using the park make this a place to not miss. Watching people play in the park, have a picnic on the lawn was a great break from the hustle and bustle of a large city.

A great place to practice sports such as walking, running, skateboarding, skates, bikes and everything. For calmer people, taking a walk and enjoying the scenery is enough. A great place in the middle of the biggest metropole in Brazil is undoubtedly a great place for a late afternoon for those who are accompanied and for those who are single too.

Just drinking coconut water Will catching the fantastic vibe of São Paulo and it'S people! The best of two worlds! An major cosmopolitan city with that sweet tropical flavour only Brasil has to offer!
