If you have a few hours to kill then a walk around this park will be alright. Entrance fee R$5. The Science museum is currently closed for a refurb, and this is a lot of what there is to do in the park. The many turtles are fun to feed, so be sure to buy the proper food from them kiosk ($2 a bag), the turtles on the lower lake are much bigger. There are a couple of Croc's in cages, and this is about the only place you will see a manatee. When we were there they were feeding the baby manatees with a giant bottle. Also saw a sloth, some large rodants, the giant otters.
Took a taxi top the park, and there were a queue of taxi's waiting outside when we went to leave. Spent about 2 hours in the park.
Lots of steps and the big lake is much lower than the top ponds (access by steps or steep path), so not friendly for those with walking problems. Play area for young children down by the lower lake.
Will be better when the science museum reopens.
