Lonely Planet review

On the edge of the lake (but across the busy road), this park and sculptural garden added some new adventure activities in 2010, including a 7m rock-climbing wall (R$20), a zipline (R$20), rappelling down a rockface (R$100) and a canopy walk (R$30) through the treetops. It's operated by Lagoa Aventuras. It's free to simply stroll through the park, and there's a short but steep trail (15 minutes' walking) to the Mirante do Sacopã , which offers scenic views from a height of 130m above Lagoa (also where the rappelling begins).
