Overview
More
Calm, green and refreshing, the city's botanical garden, situated inside the immense Parque Estadual Fontes do Ipiranga (PEFI) on the south side of town, provides a beautifully appointed sanctuary for thousands of tropical plant and animal species. The garden opened in 1938 to preserve part of the remaining Atlantic coastal forest, and it functions as a research facility focusing on Brazilian flora and fauna. The garden also shelters the source of the Rio Ipiranga, which figures heavily into national patriotic lore.

Nice garden, easy to walk, silent, and even a taste of Amazonia at the end where we meet monkeys, birds, fish. Really destressing.

Beautiful place to go with family. Great show of trees, flowers and nature in general. It is near the zoo, so you can go to both place in a same day.

I spent the day at Jardim Botanico in São Paulo and I sat with turtles, saw huge lizards, birds, and some other animal I can’t name. They have a lunch center there too. I took two trains, a subway, and an Uber to get there....More

The garden is located in a relatively nice nighbourhood of São Paulo so safety isn't a big concern. The place is well preserved and retains many aspects of it's original plan from the 1920's. A beautiful place where couples or families can enjoy.
