Neighborhood: Centro
Downtown Rio is the place where this city was born. With modern skyscrapers sharing space with historical buildings and landmarks, this neighbourhood is living proof that the old and the new can live together harmoniously. As you would expect, downtown is where all major companies house their offices. However, the region isn’t restricted to businesses. Gems such like the “Paço Imperial,” which is a cultural centre that used to serve as a residence for governors of Brazil, can be found here. Pedra do Sal, a Monday night street party, is also in this neighbourhood. This landmark is the birthplace of samba and is famous for its “roda de sambas” (“dance circles”). Stop in for one and get closer to discovering where Brazilian happiness comes from.

Good place for a rest

Nice little park, French inspired with small pond and few art statues surrounding it. Well maintained too. It has a lot of benches to sit down under tree shade.

Beautiful Park in Downtown Area
Apr 2018 • Solo
Paris Park is a beautiful garden in the Gloria district close to the downtown area of Rio de Janeiro. It is a French-style garden, similar to the Palace Garden of Versailles, with large lawns, lake and fountain in symmetrical composition. The Park was laid out in 1927 over an area of 12 Acres in an oblong shape and formally inaugurated in 1929. It was designed by a French architect and urbanist, Alfredo Agache. There is an impressive statue of Admiral Barroso on one side of the Park.

Nice garden close to downtown and airport
Oct 2017 • Couples
Very well preserved with plenty of sculptures and small lakes, this square is certainly a jewelry. It is located close to Flamengo's park (aterro). With lots of trimmed trees and French design this public space is an excellent option for small children and families that want to play and relax in a fantastic green space. Free for visitation and good for light exercise. Pet-friendly.
