    A good place to hang out and meet some animal and plant species from Amazon. Has a nice memorial of Chico Mendes and also has hiking trails and jogging track "rustic".

    One of the sights of Rio Branco. Good place to go with family and learn a little more about Rio branco and Chico Mendes. I visited on a Wednesday and charged not no value to enter or Park. Guess the Park could be better ... There are few animals to see, and some places are closed for lack of maintenance, the visit is worth it.

    Good place for family, friends, children ... In addition to a 2.5 km trail. This is one of the hidden tracks, for children and an adventure.
