Tingüi Park was opened in 1994 with 380,000 square meters, the river Barigüi. It has lakes, covered wooden bridges, a playground, bike path and plenty of green area. A great choice of leisure in Curitiba.
Ukrainian Memorial is one of main attractions in the park (already posted here in blog).
The name of the Park is a tribute to Tinguis Indians who inhabited the region for the time of its colonization by the Portuguese. A statue representing the Tindiqüera chief of the tribe Tingüi, is placed at the entrance of the Park. The Indians Tinguis cooperated and provided services to European settlers.
The photo shows a family feeding ducks and geese of the site, along one of the wooden bridges in the park.
