Dirty place. Strange people . Unsafe. Lots of prostitutes. The outside buildings are full of graffiti.

This is right downtown and we enjoyed going there on a weekend. It is not always well frequented but on weekends, there are many families with children due to the park activity. The café by the lake was a great location to observe people but the seats were poor and the service limited and not very friendly. The little zoo... More

It is right across my aunt's apartment, and for that it has a special place in my heart. Aside from that, on Saturdays there is a great Organic food market, where one can buy food from local farmers. There's also a small zoo with birds from all over. It is kept much nicer than in the past, it is a... More

The zoo is free, its quite nice, since its free but the rest of the park is terrible. The park itself isn't terrible, but it is filled with beggars, drug addicts, hiv+ hookers and people up to no good. Police seems to be patrolling here as a pure necessity. There are pedalo boats, but I would not use them ever... More

I am surprised to read so negative comments about this park. I find it rather charming and well located in the center of the city. Very exotic birds, colourful, cute. And you can see garça at the top of the trees,free, there are so elegant birds (heron). You can rent a boat for 10 Reais ( 4 USD) or a... More

Some of us a little worse for wear in our day in Curitiba so taking it easy looking for shops and having a drinking in the historical centre we stumbled through this park. What a find, multiple aviaries of stunning birds, a lake with cheap cafe on it (4.50 a large beer) and pedalos for hire (10 reais per boat).... More

This area during the day is a mix of dicey behavior and average people walking through. There's a zoo with lots of birds I found mesmerizing, but not the kind of place to go if you're vulnerable or wearing your best jewelry.

Dirt and dangerous! The surrounding are not friendly. It is not recommended even to Brazilians. Not an option to visit in Curitiba.

What a sad experience. I read there was a mini-zoo and walked from the hotel to the park. What you see when you get there is a park that could be beautiful but has been abandoned, with beggars and junkies everywhere. The saddest spectacle of it was seeing poor, end of line hookers everywhere in the park waiting for clients,... More
