Parque, São Paulo: 4 reviews and 6 photos
The oldest park and botanical garden in São Paulo, Parque da Luz, dates from 1825. When it was completed, it became popular among the city's high society, but in the 20th century, it was left to decay with the surrounding neighbourhood. Fortunately, the revitalisation of the area in the past two decades included a clean-up of the park. Delightful sculptures by notable artists were placed between the exotic trees and plants making it a joy to walk around. Although guidebooks warn about safety in the park (best visited in the mornings and not alone), I saw nothing threatening. Still, take care when visiting the park and stick to the main paths. Parque da Luz is adjacent to Pinacoteca do Estado and opposite Estação da Luz.
