I went there expecting to see a lot more things, but there is not much. It is better to go to the Botanic garden rather than here.

If this is the park that is traversed on the train to the 'statue' then it is amazing , a real rain forest in the city .

Put sunblock, get there early. Their were talking about closing this place because there was no money to support this beautiful park, of course the PT party has stolen all the money of the country. So if you are in Rio is a must see if still open.

The building and gardens are lovely. The little Resturant in the corner does great food. The building could do with a refurbishment it's a shame to see something with so much heritage go to ruin. The state should be ashamed of themselves for not putting funding into this building.

The Parque Lage is a large green area that once belonged to a wealthy man, who built an Italian-style castle for his wife. She was an Italian opera singer and he wanted to make her feel more "at home". It now is a public park, very nice, proper to picnics. There is a cafe beautifully located in the internal area...

I'd say this is a must do! When going to Rio you get a wonderful walk with a lot of nature everywhere my friends and I loved it! Even more than the botanical gardens! It is free and very well preserved! You must go

Beautiful park not far from the botanical gardens. Gives added value because is much more natural than the the botanical gardens. there is even a trail that leads to the Cristo Redentor. The entrance is free.

If you have an extended stay in Rio, I would definitely recommend making a visit here. The views are beautiful and I would recommend taking a short ride into the Lagoon on the Swan Boats. It was a really fun daytime activity.

Thank Kaykay
