Must see attraction in Rio. It's really close to Jardím Botanico and there is a bus stop nearby from where you can reach Christ the redemeer's statue by one bus ( I don't remember the number, sorry). There is a playground in the garden for kids. The park itself is very nice and well maintained.

Fantastic park, home to the School of Visual Arts, it features fantastic gardens which lead to the National Forest of Tijuca.

Nice park to walk around if you are in the area... They have some ruins to visit, a little museum, nice old house, some fake caves, an old aquarium, and some areas to have picnics. I personally enjoy the botanical gardens next door more than this park. but if you are in the area visit...

A beautiful park, definitely worth a visit. Look for monkey, there are a number of them here. Then wonder around the less visited areas.

Walk or rent a bike and spend half a day circling this man made lagoon that features some of the best vistas of the city.

The park is awesome for people who like to be in contact with nature. And if you like hiking, this is one of the best trails in Rio, it goes from the park to the Corcovado (Christ statue). The trail takes about 1h each way, but dont go alone if you dont know it.

Beautifully landscaped grounds greet you on the approach to the main attraction. The silent grace of the old palace beckons you to the reflecting pool. A great destination best enjoyed during the week, as it attracts massive crowds on weekends.

It has amazing atmosphere. You can see the Christo from there. There are huge trees, lakes and in the middle of it a nice building.. I was shocked how something can be so awesome

Great place to visit in the middle of Rio. Quiet, nature reserve with hiking paths, caves, monkey, a nice cafe, art school, and all free to visit. Great for when you are tired of the typical tourist stuff. You can get there with the Metro Superficie (Rapid transit Metro Bus). Also, 15min walk to Jardim Botanico.
