I wish all neighborhood in the town had a nice park like that. The garden is fairly well maintained. It is usually difficult to find parking places around its area during the business hours, but easy in the evenings. Usually 7 am or 7 pm are the busiest times to walk or practice sports on the park. The park has swing and other plaything for kids and equipment for adults sports

Vale Sul Shopping

Reviewed By Denise S - Brazil

All the usual shops. All major fast food restaurants.
Movie theater with 6 very comfortable rooms. The best ones in town, actually. BUT, if you want to watch a movie in english, you will have a hard time finding one here. For that, go to another smaller mall, Shopping Colinas, with 12 rooms for a more 'educated' crowd. There, only some movies will be in portuguese. Always check for the audio language before buying your ticket in Brazil.
Well, back to this mall, there is plenty of paid parking space in the open. Bear that in mind when going there. This is a tropical country with very high temperatures. When you come back to your car open doors and windows and do not go inside for a minute. It will be worth it.

Memorial Aeroespacial Brasileiro

Nice place seeping with Brazilian Aerospace History ! It was interesting to see a passenger car made fully of Bamboo, which is quite unique. I was there in June 2012, to attend a three day Aerospace conference. There may be restrictions for entry of common people, since it is located inside an area manned by Military Police, but Brazilian citizens may get an easy entry.
