Ibirapuera is the largest park in São Paulo, with 1.6 million square feet. Its wide green area is home to the Municipal School of Astrophysics and the School of Gardening, one auditorium, museums, as well as event and exhibition pavilions: Afro Brazil Museum, Museum of Modern Art, Museum of Contemporary Art, Japanese Pavilion, Bienal Pavilion, the Ibirapuera Auditorium, and Oca.

The jogging and biking tracks (recently restored) are widely attended, as are the sports fields, fitness equipment, picnic areas and children’s playgrounds. Some other attractions are the Multimedia Fountain (which projects images on the splashes of water), the Manequinho Lopes greenhouse, Planetarium, the obelisk in homage to the heroes of the 1932 Revolution, and the Bandeiras Monument. The park opened in 1954, during the IV Centennial of São Paulo’s foundation celebrations.
