Great way to spend an active morning

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.

Very nice and quiet place. You can hike in the forest. Just be careful of bugs. It's a very safe place (don't listen to what's said in the guide).

This is a lovely place, it has the feel of the botanical garden but smaller and with shade! The Visual Arts School of Parque Lage is located in a beautiful old mansion and has always something to offer, there is a café inside and you can even see the Corcovado from there! It gets crowded on sundays, since many families... More

If you want to re-live Snoop/Pharrell's video "Beautiful", this was one of the places they filmed at! This former Mansion with the Corcovado mountain in the background makes a nice contrast and you can take some neat pics. If you are a nature lover, there's a couple of trails, you can even go up to Corcovado (not an easy hike... More

The Parque Lage is a very beautiful park in the Lagoa district of Rio de Janeiro. In the park there is an Academy of Arts (nice building and temporary exhibitions), a very bizarre small aquarium, ponds, a small waterfall, a bandstand. It all looks a bit run down but it is a great place to unwind and take a break... More

A very charming park at the foothills of Corcovado (the peak with statue of Christ). In fact, you can hike a trail to the Christ statue starting in this park. The park itself is free to enter and once inside has a variety of trails leading to a duck pond, an aquarium, a playground, and other interesting structures. It seems... More
