Unfortunately, this is one more example how a nice garden can be fade and destroyed when it is abandoned. What a pity for this park which was created during the colonial pariod and was opened to the public in 1825. There are native trees, some...More

I lived my whole life in SP and never entered this park, as I always heard it was unsafe. Went on a local holiday and it was a very nice surprise, scultures, really old and beautiful trees, fountains and corettos. It's a pity that it's...More

Located in the same block of the Pinacoteca museum, it is nice to spend some time in this park. There is almost no green space in the downtown area of São Paulo. The park now has some big sculptures in the middle of century-old trees....More

Beautiful old park to the side of the Pinoteca. It is an older style, well maintained park that reminded me of the Botanical Gardens in Buenos Aires. To address the security concerns that have been raised, it's perfectly safe. Plenty of people walking around including...More
