A nice place to escape from the urban jungle and relax in contact with nature. Far from the center, but worths a visit if you have free time.

This park is a beatiful refuge. It´s not so visited, however on the weekends many people enjoy it. There are some tracks, a view for a city horizon and a lake

The way to Pedra Grande is all paved and the sanitary facilities are quite adequate. From there you can see much of the city. If you are lucky you can still enjoy the howler monkeys walking through the trees.
