“Love”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012

Love it here, it's a great spot to just relax, ride bikes and spend the day at. You can buy coco verdes, ice cream, and rent bikes. There are a few restaurants and bars as well ( a bit pricey).

“Recommend Catacumba Park!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2012

Didn't spend time on the lake but Catacumba has trails with great views of the lake, Ipanema, favelas and Cristo. You can also zip line, canopy walk and rappel there. Beautiful peaceful park with really interesting sculptures

“Good for Sports”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

Good for running, walking, taking a coconut water and enjoy the view of the lake.
You can also use the pedal boat for ride on the lake.

“La-Go-A”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012

Great place to jog, walk, rent a bike, paddle boat or just watch the rowers race by Cristo. Can get busy on the weekends, uneducated cyclists thinking they are on there personal velodrome, other than that, grab a coconut water and bring a camera. There are also some nice places to have a long slow sunset beer, a slice of peace in the center of chaos.
