World's Most Beautiful City Parks: Ibirapuera Park

Ibirapuera Park, São Paulo, Brazil

World-renowned Brazilian architect Oscar Niemeyer worked with landscape architect Roberto Burle Marx on a vision for Ibirapuera Park (opened in 1954). Niemeyer designed many of the signature buildings, including the flying-saucer-like planetarium and the Ibirapuera Auditorium, with a flamelike red structure at its entrance and concerts held inside. On Sundays, near the duck pond at the Bosque da Leitura, visitors can sunbathe with a book or magazine courtesy of the park’s lending library.
