Parque Chico Mendes in São Paulo

The park takes its name from Francisco Mendes Filho (Chico Mendes), a rubber tapper, unionist and an environmentalist, always committed in the cause in favor of nature. A concrete expression of this concern is the Parque Chico Mendes, a space of more than 50 square meters of vegetation, located in one of the poorest areas of green in the city of São Paulo.

The site has springs that feed a stream dammed to form an artificial lake, and bicycle, trails and sports courts. Animals such as the owl from the woods, the hawk-half Indian, the orange-thrush, the clay-john Cambaceres and can be observed daily in place.

Specimens of wild birds threatened by urban sprawl, such as owl from the woods, half Indian-hawk, Rufous-orange, clay-john and Cambaceres. Other animals, such as field-jararaquinha possum and ear-to-black, are also found on site. The natural wetland originated from springs that form the waterway is home to guinea pigs and chickens waterline. Tilapia, marmosets-tufted black-and poultry such as ducks, geese and ducks.

Areas of landscaped gardens, orchards, eucalyptus and remnants of Atlantic Forest along the creek to the lake. Stand out copies of fig tree, chestnut-Portuguese, ipe-purple, guapuruvu, ceiba, jambolão paw-to-cow, jatoba, cherry tree and mamica-of-nut.

Special features

The park takes its name from Francisco Mendes Filho - Chico Mendes - tapper, unionist and environmentalist.
