São Lourenço Park

São Lourenço Park in Curitiba

In the early 1970's a flood by a dam breaking caused damage to this area which required repairing, and those repairs resulted in the building of this park. The park was inaugurated in 1972 and has had several buildings re-purposed to suite the park.

An old glue and fertilizer factory was transformed into the Creativity Center of Curitiba, which offers courses, training, presentations and exhibitions to the public.

In May, 1994 the Center founded the Lyceum of Arts in order to preserve old techniques and to train apprentices, with the end goal to help those who took the apprenticeships with job skills that would help their chances in the job market.

The countryside is peaceful and makes for a nice place to visit. The park now has sheep, which are now part of the landscape in this area. It's another beautiful park in Curitiba and visitors are encouraged to make a trip over there.

Curitiba has many parks that attract many visitors each year, and because of the density of parks within Curitiba, it's almost impossible not to run into another nearby park.   This park is within a 30 minute walk to the most popular park in Curitiba, Barigüi Paruqe.  Along with Barigüi Paruqe there is also Tingüi Parque and Tangua Park which are all connected to create a very large recreational area.  

In the vicinity of this park, there is  the trio of parks which are all connected, creating another great place for locals and tourists alike to relax. 

 

Don't forget the fair on Saturdays, which runs from 10am to 5pm.
