Bosque da Barra is 50 hectares (124 acres) of pure green right in the middle of the busy West Zone of the city. Close to the Avenue of Americas, this park was created with the goal of environmental preservation and protection of the natural landscape and local wildlife in an urban setting. Here you can see rare and endangered species of butterflies and orchids, native to this area. A wide variety of wildlife makes this a popular place for birdwatching. Tree-lined boulevards and trails are ideal for jogging, cycling, and long walks away from city traffic. There are also lots of grassy areas where you can picnic or play sports.
