  • In the heat of the Acre, the Park is a refuge to withstand the heat. We can observe many animals typical of the region, it's like a mini zoo well wooded.

  • The most beautiful location in Rio Branco, one can see the ounces (the painted and the Red). Something unique these days I like PORTUGUESE had never seen such a beautiful animal like this. The nature and the cleaning are in impeccable qualities.

  • It's not a super Zoo, nor expect to see different animals ... for anyone who has already been in zoos of larger cities, can be disappointing, but for those who never been in another and lives in Rio Branco (where there are few options to walk with children) is an option. Sunday mornings is well filled with families strolling. There is a large grass area where you can picnic, with plenty of shade and playground for children.
