    Is a common zoo, actually expect to see different animals, but it didn't happen, the cable car passes over the zoo, was with child and need to feed us and wasn't very nice (eat!) we had difficulty in finding the GPS, and the location is not too favorable. But it wasn't bad.

    Have a zoo in a very large area but no animal in particular. I found a little unkempt. The cable car passes over the entire Park and getting there has a track with a nice view.

    A great area of Atlantic forest reserve in the city of Aracaju, chairlift permeates much of the Park, a zoo for the dimensions of the city. However the abandonment and the lack of security undermines the good use of space for tourism and recreation.
