  • The Park has the largest remaining urban reserve of original Atlantic forest located on the waterfront of Salvador. Good structure to receive tourists and a bike path that runs along the its about 14 km. pond a generated by damming the river Pituaçu beautifies the place. Worth checking out!

  • Has been one of the most visited and beautiful areas of the city, currently is a bit abandoned. The population soterápõlitana usually go hiking, bike, walk between adar areas with options for children and adolescents. On Sundays is usually busier and safer. If you are meet would prefer to get the morning and accompanied. There is the option to rent a bike and do the ride, before starting the course and to be informed where it's safe.

  • Has several interesting sculptures, often live music in the restaurant, very green, many options for snacks and drinks in the stalls and in the restaurant. Is a good place to train skates too. Also recommend to pique nique or a walk in nature.

  • Nice park to drive around on bycikles that you can rent on a site. Great to spend afternoon with family and kids. There was visible security through the park so it feels safe. Park has also a lake that you can explore on canoe or "swan like" pedal floats. If you like modern art and sculptures, it is a great place to see artwork of Brazilian sculptor Mario Cravo. Unfortunately the sculptures have seen better days, so I would not wait to see these too long..
  • Ok
  • Don't go. Horrible park with little to do other than watching people splash the unswimmable water on themselves.
  • Top!
