Ibirapuera Park features a Japanese pavilion (said to be a replica of the Imperial Palace in Kyoto), art museums (Museu de Arte Moderna and Museu de Arte Contemporanea), sports areas, sculptures, lakes and gardens, and a planetarium.
The park is quite popular with the rollerblading crowd, and is a good place to get a whiff of fresh air within the congested big city. Locals pack into the park on the weekends, so it is a fun spot to see how they play in their spare time.

Parque Ibirapuera is one of the most visited parks for the citizens of Sao Paulo and tourists for all reasons that are quite understandable.
Its size is 1.6 million square meters in size, to understand just how immense is this park.
It is located at Avenida Pedro Alvares Cabral(name of Portuguese explorer who discovered Brazil), with free admission and is open everyday from 5 in the morning until ten at night.
I personally would not recommend being at the park in the night hours, for there are greater possibilities of crime.
Among the many activities of Parque Ibirapuera are sports, jogging and visiting monuments and museums too.
The monument( Monumento as Bandeiras) is quite impressive.
I shall be providing a photo of this for your viewing and you are sure to agree.
Don't forget your camera too.
You will also be capable to see the monument to Formula 1 deceased driver,Ayrton Senna. It's bronze monument of him with a stainless steel car.
For those wishing to make the trip,you may also care to visit this tomb in the Morumbi Cementary( Cemiterio Morumbi).
On his plaque are inscribed these words, "Nada Pode Me Separar do Amor de Deus", translated as "Nothing Could Separate Myself from the Love of God".
Senna was a world famous Formula 1 racer whom died in a terrible race in 1994 in San Marino.
He is a true hero to all Brazilians.
