  • Park on the street of the same name, in the city centre. Is a óasis of tranquility amid the noise and heat inclement that does in a few months on the river. Around or near restaurants, cinemas, theaters, bookstores. It is near Cinelândia subway station.

  • The Park is small and lies in the central region of Rio de Janeiro. Unfortunately, like most of the Central parks of the capital's unkempt.

  • The first public park in the country. Created by d. João VI with the arrival of the Royal family in 1808. Simple, interesting among other attractions of the historic centre of the river. Has the activity programming alternatives worth checking out.
