Very good park to walk, lots of people walking on sunny days, Sundays are very special, with several activities. Good for Sunday mornings to walk or to go to Sunday noon mass at the catholic church there.

This park is not so big but it is enough to have a walk ou running. It is 1 km long to do it. There are also some places just to relax. Nice option in the city.

The Parque Vicentina Aranha is a great place for fitness activities (walk or run). The old buildings, at least the open one, are worth a visit.

Good to breath and practice some activities outdoors. There are also often cultural events or some sort going on. They have a public piano - totally out of tune, but nice idea.

Nice place to walk by centenary and fruit trees. It is a peaceful place to be. I really enjoy walking there on Sundays, when there is live music in the Coreto Sao Joao.
