Bosque da Barra, Rio de Janeiro

3.9
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.

  • I went to the Woods in the past fds and realized that several people use the area for parties, baby shower, picnic and other activities. I asked what the procedure was and they told me it was just coming and putting it all together. On another occasion, I was informed that I should ask the space manager for permission. What's the criteria? I found it kind of disorganized this matter of coming and putting it all together

  • At the moment the lake and the forest playground is abandoned, due to lack of maintenance the waters invandiram the lawn killing several trees and ending the lawn. I'm disappointed with what I saw, now in early September/19. The place is a reference for picnics and photo essay.

  • A corner of nature, right in front of the City of Arts. The Bosque da Barra is a stroll to dazzle with the flora and fauna of the region, as well as to have a picnic, take a bike ride, walk or enjoy the local toys. Just perfect.
