  • The Park is beautiful and well located and is well used by the local population. For visitors from outside of Acre would be a good chance to get to know the nature and the local animals, but the space leaves much to be desired. The animals are in a mini-zoo relatively well signposted. The Observatory is closed for over ten years. The Chico Mendes memorial is not in good condition. But, after all, is a must.

  • Trivial
  • Bela fauna e flora
  • Little variety of animals in captivity. Parking is paid. Has restaurant and cafeteria. Great for kids, because the playground is great and has some educational visitations. Has Community Academy. Many tables under trees, good for picnic. People put a lot of net. Top to enjoy a read.

  • Missing a little more zeal about the animals and a greater variety in them. Other than that it's a very good and easy to take the family.
