Ibirapuera Park - Brazil

I'm still in São Paulo and now with card from the Ibirapuera Park, sent in the last 8 years by Paula, Déa, Ilona and Luzia.

Ibirapuera Park is a major urban park in São Paulo, Brazil. It has a large area for leisure, jogging and walking, as well a vivid cultural scene with museums and a music hall. Its importance to São Paulo is often comparable to that of Central Park to New York City, Golden Gate Park to San Francisco, or Ueno Park to Tokyo. Ibirapuera is one of South America's largest city parks, together with Chapultepec Park, in Mexico City and Simón Bolívar Park in Bogota.

Inaugurated in 1954 for the 400th anniversary of the city, with buildings designed by famous architect Oscar Niemeyer and landscape by agronomist Otávio Agusto de Teixeira Mendes. Ibirapuera Park covers an area of almost 2 square kilometres (0.77 sq mi). It is the second largest park in the city. - in: wikipedia

Ibirapuera Parks offers several cultural attraction, such as Biennial Pavilion, Japanese Pavilion, Museum of Modern Art, Museum of Contemporary Art, Afro-Brazil Museum, etc. 

And also areas for fitness, bicycle path, 13 courts, playgrounds and three artificial lakes.

Obelisk is a symbol of the Constitutionalist Revolution of 1932, and the biggest monument of the city of São Paulo. The height of the monument is 72 meters. The construction of the monument was started in 1947 and completed in 1970.
