I started going there because a friend of mine lives right in front of it and used to go all the time. Since it’s a nice place to just relax, read a book, have a picnic and it’s very close to my house, I find it the best thing for a Sunday. I generally go when I have no worries in mind, in the afternoon, for example, just to be alone and do nothing else.
São Paulo has too many buildings: so, as the biggest chunk of this park is really up high, from there it is possible to see a great green area that other parks don’t usually have – and much of the city as well.
But the main thing – and the meaning of the nickname given to it – is that you can see the sun setting from there. Of course, the buildings are still there, but watching the sun go down behind the trees is very beautiful, it really pays off to go at this time of the day!
