I love riding my bicycle with friends at night and a nice and safe place to do that on Sundays is Minhocão. There's no car traffic at that time, it's peaceful, and that makes it one of the few open-air places to go also at night that is not a nightclub or something - you can naturally interact and socialize with other people, children and families.
When closed for car traffic Minhocão eases off a little of this “urbanoid” aspect of São Paulo and literally opens space for many cool interventions, new and free movements - on hot days you may even find a swimming pool there to refresh yourself.
If the idea of transforming this street into a park really comes to fruition, the city will benefit much and I am totally supportive of this cause. On week days Minhocão is also a shortcut to get through a segment of the city by car, but making a park of it would add so much value to that central area.
On Sundays Minhocão already functions as an open park, where everyone can see each other, and I bike along a fair portion of the city to get there and feel at ease, as if I owned that street!
