Like many good paulistanos, we spent a Sunday afternoon in Parque Ibirapuera.
Ibirapuera is the second biggest park in Sao Paulo and one of the largest in Latin America (The largest park in Sao Paulo is Parque Estadual Fontes do Ipiranga, otherwise known as Parque do Estado also the place where the victims of the Brazilian serial killer Francisco de Assis Pereira were found. Let’s talk more on that later…).
Ibirapuera is definitely a park for everyone. Often compared to New York City’s Central Park (though the two are very different in so many ways), the park offers activities for all walks of life. Although I can’t find any statistics on this, I’m guessing that on a Sunday afternoon, the park is at its peak capacity.
The space has plenty of stuff for kids:
Food & Beverage:
Art and architecture (there are actually a number of museums and buildings in the park, none of which we visited today) :
But what I find most fascinating about Ibirapuera is the variety of vegetation:
Absolutely an interesting place to spend an afternoon!
