Tingüi Park

Tingui Park

Tingüi Park is one of the main parks in Curitiba and is located in the northern part of the city, in the neighbourhood of St. John. The park is part of a broader project that provides for the establishment of parks across the river Barigüi and it is a continuation of Barigüi Park. For visitors, there is a cycleway and a jogging track along the river, with areas for sports and barbecues.

Established in 1994, it covers an area of 380,000 square meters, has lakes, a covered wooden bridge, a playground, a bike path and plenty of green area for tourists to enjoy the park.

At the entrance of the park is a gateway which has a statue of Chief Tindiqüera sculpted in bronze. He was the leader of the tribe Tingüi, and this statue pays homage to all indigenous people who inhabited this region.

Inside the park there is the Ukrainian Memorial, built in 1995 to commemorate the centennial of Ukrainian immigration in Brazil.

There is also the Brazil 500 Years Square, opened in 2000 it celebrates 500 years since the discovery of Brazil.

The Historical Sector is all around this area, where the oldest buildings in the city are found.  Since this area attracts so many tourists and travellers, it only made sense to put many of the musuems here as well.  Take a look at the Capão da Imbuia Woods and Sacred Art Museum of Curitiba, both of which are very close by.   While visiting the Historical Sector, don't forget to see the various statues and fountains, such as the Fonte da Memoria.

 

This video shows not only the park, but a whole heard of Capivara, a small animal that lives in the swamps and grazes on the grass.
