“Great park, excellent place to visit or do some running”

Parque Vicentina Aranha
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 23 August 2016

This is a very interesting park to visit in São José dos Campos. Vicentina Aranha was the name of a hospital that was built in the 20's and it worked until 2004 with high walls around it, that did not allow anyone from outside to see the beauty of the trees around it. After some time closed, the city hall decided to open it to the public. The old buildings are still being renewed, with the help of donations. There is a nice little chapel in the back with mass on Sundays. Even though this is small park (only one block big), it is very useful for people who enjoy running. There are concerts on Sunday mornings, near to the bamboo area, a chess club and some cultural events as well.

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.

This park is near my parents house and I used to do my running on it. It is great place inside the city, with a lot of green space.

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.
