Ibirapuera Park is in the centre of São Paulo and is a must-go-to destination at the weekend. Inaugurated in 1954, to celebrate the 400th aniversary of São Paulo, Ibirapuera Park was design by landscape architect Burle Marx and the famous Brazilian architect Oscar Niemeyer. There are 2 million square meters of open space incorporating gardens, sports pitches, the Modern Art and Contemporary Art museums, Ibirapuera Planetarium, The Japanese Pavilion, and the famous obelisk as seen in our picture. Ibirapuera Park is a great place to hang out, meet people and pickup a game of football or basket ball ! Ibirapuera Park is open from 06:00 to 20:00. Entry is free and the nearest metro station is Brigadeiro.
