  • As I am a student of biology, and at the time was part of a group that researched mammals we had authorization from City Hall to gain access to the inside of the garden. He closed a long time ago and plants and animals already recovered enough, having several species of native fauna. While researching the city began some revitalization works in your interior and apparently it won't be long before they open to the public. It's very nice in that it's a unique experience.

  • I visited a lot when I was a kid, I was a very nice place, beautiful and with a lot of kills, had a lake in the central region and was ideal for Sunday rides with the family and have a picnic. Too bad it's been closed for years and the municipal public power does not take the necessary steps to revitalization.
