Highly recommend visiting this park in late afternoon. For 15 rials you can purchase a pass to the aviary, butterfly center and tower. We ended up in the tower last right before closing time at sunset and the view was incredible! A beautiful place -take your time!

Hundreds of flamingos, garces and other birds living on freedom and enjoying the City. Perfect place for relaxing and spend Free Time with the Nature and wildlife. There are an excellent restaurant, but expensive. Check for prices before ordering food or drinks. Nice to visit to see the sunset on the Guajamirim Bay.

It's a nice place to visit if you are in Belém. In the tower, you have a great view to the city, river and the rain forest also. It's a good place to walk and appreciate the nature around. They also have a great restaurant there.

The park is great for a stroll, you feel in the middle of the jungle. There are birds and plants of many species and you can see them freely around. There is an observation tower, but we could not climb because the elevator was broken and the stairs were closed because according to the lady in the cashier 'we could... More

the park is located near the Ver o Peso market; it has good infra structure for visitors, an excellent restaurant, a good museum of Brazilian history; the view from the watch tower is magnificent; I recommend also the Butterfly complex, if possible with a guided tour.

Lovely safe park! Nice place to walk around, see some wildlife and relax. For small fee you can see the butterflies and go up the tour which has wonderful views of the river and city - worth it! The butterfly/hummingbird enclosure is nice, worth sitting down to enjoy being surrounded by the butterflies - I counted 6 species. Safe to... More

It was my first time at Belem, northern city of Brazil. I had always heard that the city used to be very hot due to humidity. And that's true! However the city has beautiful parks, museums and outside activities to do. Mangal is one of them. If you like contact with nature, plants, animals, silent place where you can relax... More

"Mangal das Garças" is a complex with short museum, butterfly nursery, a big garden and a restaurant. You can enjoy a good view from Guama river (Amazonas small arm) and some shadows under the trees. As the hit is in the limit of unsupport, it is better spending a day very calm, taking time to everything.
