  • Nice, spacious and pleasant to make family trip, rest, exercise, riding a bicycle, etc. Park quality urban and landscape with good equipment. Unique details: there is changing in the bathrooms and there are no many spaces with shade. Picnics are apparently not what is good because it helps to maintain cleanliness.

  • It is a new Park recommended, very beautiful. The landscaping is very interesting, with ramps and gardens around a lagoon. In spring, they flowering plants "Sun highlighted" and it looks incredible. In winter, it is ideal for watching the sunset. The trouble is that it is not as close to a Metro station.

  • I had not had the option of going to this park, until this weekend we start there. As I was still thinking it's a place to go without sun, there is no shade, but as to grow the trees sure to be a good ride even with an unforgiving Sun. It is a quiet place, great family, care and good walking trails. It was difficult to find parking.
