We went here on a Wednesday and found it to be uncrowned and overall relaxing. We saw monkeys and wildlife. We're able to get a table. Swim. Go on the nature trails and feel like we were miles away from the big city. All for a few dollars. We will go back every time we visitBrasilia from now on.

.....this park is in my hometown, Brasilia, the capital of Brazil. After years, I still enjoy one of the best feature of this park: the swimming pools have NATURAL water, with no chemicals whatsoever. They keep clean by keep the water moving, running, always flowing. Love this place !

It has a number of tracks, which allows you to get to know the local cerrado, as well as two natural pools, refreshing in always hot Brasilia. 20 min car ride from the city center.

If you are interested in flora and fauna you may wish to visit this typical Brazilian savanna (cerrado) environment, although a large part of the area suffered this year from forest fires. A better oprion is the Jardim Botanico, accessible at the end of QI 23 (Lago Sul), a 20 minute taxi ride from the city centre. This is a more manageable visit, greatly liked by gardeners and others who are genuinely interested in tropical and semi-tropical plants and trees, orchids etc. Friendly staff too at the research /visitors centre in the middle of the Jardim.

It's better known for its unofficial name Água Mineral. Because it is relatively inexpensive and very close to the city, people call its pools "the beach of Brasilia". There's a cap on the number of visitors each day to ensure the preservation of the park, so if you must go on a weekend, be prepared to get there before 8 AM and wait in line.

There's nothing special about the pools, really. Leave it for the locals. Go for the hikes, where you can see the uniqueness of the vegetation of the Cerrado, a kind of savanah indigenous to central Brazil somewhat similar to its African cousin.

There are 2 trails: Capivara (about 15-20 minutes) and Cristal Água (1 hour). They're both really easy. Capivara is well shadowed and closer to the pool area, and it's quite busy at all times so no special precautions are needed.

For Cristal Água you should bring comfortable shoes, a bottle of water, sunscreen and a hat. However, you will have a great opportunity of enjoying silence and contact with nature, as hikers are few and far between even on the busiest days.
