Great place to enjoy a sunny day. You can for sure enjoy your self renting a bike, run, doing a picnic or a simple walking. It is possible to see the christ and some peaks from there which makes the experience amazing. There are a lot of places to eat within a walikng distance. It is also possible to wakeboard in the lake if you are into more rad experiences.

If you want to enjoy the lake, the plan is easy, rent a bike for one hour, and turns around the lake, very nice plan to do.

This is a typical place in Rio, where you will find the South zone style. See and be seen, jog, bike, have a beer... A good walking program anytime.

This lake is very big and has different atractions though all its perimeter, I"ll focus my comment in "parque dos patins" region. Great place to go with kids and have a picnic! There are lots of available spots for doing this (restrooms available only at the local restaurants), there are bike rental, and kids playgrounds (free or paid)

A nice place to go for a calm walk or bike ride. It's a beautiful place with nice view of the city. However, it's a pity, because the lake water could be way cleaner than what it is.
