Great atmosphere, decent lunch around the pool and a visit to the ateliers after was lovely. Just relax and imagine this as a private house.

This is not one of the most famous Rio's attraction, but up to me, it' really a place that deserve a visit!!
The building is very nice, but the best thing is the surrounding nature: plenty of different kinds of tropical trees, flowers, small waterfalls, some little caves where you can enter, a cozy aquarium in a sort of natural cave, a small lake with huge red fishes and a part of the park where there are the monkeys on the trees.
It's also possible to do some trekking up to the Corcovado, but we have been told that you must be very expert to do it, otherwise could be very dangerous ( some fatal accidents have been reported in the past).
I believe that if you wish to relax for some hours not on the beach this is the perfect place and its visit could be done jointly with that of the Botanical Garden, that is located very nearby.
In the building there is also a small bar with outside tables under the arches, it's ok for a drink, but the food is just so so.

This place is wonderful. It's totally for free and you can enjoy an afternoon with your friends in a summer day under some cool tree shades.

I would recommend you to spend the day there, reading a good book or having some fun with friends, playing games and talking. It is totally possible to have a romantic day of love near the fountain.

That is the house of the Fine Arts School of Rio de Janeiro Federal University and, now and then, there is a showing of arts there. The building if beautiful and worthy some pictures.

The picnic is a must.

The only problem you can find is about toilets. I couldn't find them - but I didn't really need them, I have no problems with it. Water to drink was not found too. I advise you to take your own bottle of water.

AN excellent way to spend a sunny day, cloudy day, any day. Not only is the park easily accessible and free, it is full of amazingly weird places, like a grotto, folly, tower, rocky aquarium and waterfall. A great place for a photo shoot or a picnic. Gets crowded on weekends with family parties as there are toys for kids but is still wonderful. The cafe gets very full on weekend mornings but it's delightful for a midweek lunch, next to the peaceful pond. Sometimes there are art exhibitions there as well.

It is a park where you can see/enjoy pure nature. It has a playground for those who have children, also good for picnics. Children enjoy a lot! Lots of nature and we can see many monkeys. Also holds a small aquarium (not the best one...)
But it has a nice cave and children LOVE it!!!!

It holds a visual arts school where you can see students painting (great for those who love arts).
No admission fee, just parking if you go by car.
*girls should avoid high heels when visiting there
