I have been in Rio more than 10 times and never went to this place. But it is worth the visit. There are some scenic trails where you will have some spetacular views of the city. Take care of the sun and carry much water.

The park is hard to access via public transport, but a quick 20 minute hike gives a great view of the Lagoa!

The park is not easy to get there but if you want to try or spend some times with a open space for the children it could be helpful. Otherwise there are better places to make the children happy too.

Allow yourself some time to lay a "canga" on the grass and contemplate the landscape of Lagoa Rodrigo de Freitas in a winter afternoon while tasting a beverage and having a snack. A great alternative to the beach, specially if the day is a little bit cloudy. Enjoy!

Catacumba, besides being a beautiful park, hosts an adventure park inside. It is a very nice program for a family with chuldren from 5-14 years old. Kids would love it!

I´ve never heard about this park and discovered to be the one best maintained and with a lot and great activities available there like trails, tree climbing and tyrolese.

Catacumba park has a nice view of Lagoa Rodrigues de Freitas, but to be honest besides that, there is not much to do.

This hidden place is very close to the Lagoa, the hike is short but it can be a little irregular/steep at times (maybe not for very small children, unless you can carry them!), the view from the top is very nice and worth the hike. They sell snacks and drinks at the bottom and on the way up there are... More

Off of Lagoa (you have to cross the bridge to get over the traffic), this is a free public park that has a short hike up to a nice lake view and then paid activities for kids and adults: a zipline (small), two ropes courses (one for younger kids), and a small climbing wall. They also hold birthday parties there... More
