Catacumba Park, Rio de Janeiro

4.5
#32 of 90 in Parks in Rio de Janeiro
Designed as a sculpture park, Catacumba Park is also a tropical forest with many hiking trails under a lush canopy of native trees. You can always find cooler temperatures and a constant shade from the hot Brazilian sun here. After viewing sculptures in the lower section of the park, take a scenic trail up the hill, at top of which a panoramic view of the Lagoa district and the mountains of Dois Irmaos and Pedra da Gavea opens up. From here you can also see the iconic Christ the Redeemer Statue. This park was developed on the site of a former favela, and currently offers a number of adventures to visitors, from rock-climbing and rappelling, to zip-lining and canopy walks through the treetops.

  • This Park is very good choice to go with family, if you have Boy Scouts is a must-see, entry is free of charge and on the side of the door there is an area of reports, where there was very kind people, by this same area there is a space of games for young children in mu and good condition, my 4 year old daughter was delighted. He liked going around it, has beautiful trails and my 8 year old son made used of the services offered (for costs individual or combos) on tree climbing, rappelling and zip lines, was very happy... Best thing is that sales and front have another excellent family option as it is the lagoon of freitas. A family trip with children in Rio?, recommend together both activities nearby. First the Park then the lagoon, because the Park has schedule

  • The Parque da Catacumba is an ecological reserve on the banks of the Rodrigo de Freitas lagoon. On site are garden areas with paths and picturesque alleys, in tune with the dense vegetation which extends for the full length of the Park. You can make several excursions, picnic and hiking. Not to be missed.

  • The Park is very close to Lagoa Rodrigo de Freitas. There are several works of art laid out the Park, and green, with small trails. There is a small Zipline. Access to the Park is free. The Tyrolean ticket is paid.
