Self conducted walk from Rio Central Conference Centre

Very difficult to get in. All fenced off and derelict. Just really sad. Dont expect much to see if you come to a conference and stay nearby at Rio Central.

I can see little point in such a visit, but it was part of the tour, it is really not worth the effort unless Olympics and running tracks are a special interest.

A tribute to wasted money
Jul. 2017 • Solo
Why on earth did Brazil spend billions of dollars to host the Rio 2016 Olympic Games? The answer lies in Brazil's notorious corruption schemes. Government contracts are lucrative business for construction firms which habitually overcharge for their services in exchange for rich bribes to government officials. The more expensive, the better. The Olympic Park is no exception: recent estimates point to a cost of R$ 7 billion (roughly US$ 2 billion). As if that weren't scandalous enough, the Olympic Park was built over the installations which had been built for the 2007 Panamerican Games. Furthermore, the taxpayer will be billed another R$ 1.3 billion (about US$ 400 million) just for future maintenance. That said, only a year after the Games, the installations are already decaying due to shoddy construction and lack of maintenance. Rather than building the Olympic Park, Brazil should have built a huge jail to lock up its corrupt politicians and constructors.

no olympic games, what's left?
May 2017 • Friends
Now that the area is no longer being used for the olympics, there's absolutely nothing going on here. previous plans to have the area used for entertainment, school, etc have been abandoned and so has the area.

It was great to see the place where the Olympic was held. Although we didnt go inside it, the structure was huge and am sure served its purpose.

Olympic park with a lovely atmosphere
Aug. 2016 • Business
I visited the park during the Rio Olympics and it was not my first Olympic experience. The atmosphere in Rio was lovely, people were warm and enthusiastic. I felt the park was a lovely compromise between representative function and lowering the costs.

All I hope is the park will not deteriorate...

Beautiful stadium during Olympics
Aug. 2016 • Couples
During the Olympics this stadium was beautiful, but i have since heard it has gone downhill some. I guess they are not spending the money on it they once were.

You'll be suprised
Aug. 2016 • Couples
Just how big they have made this Olympic park they truly have made the uk sports stadiums look miniature. Wouldn't recommend it on a very hot day but there is alot of places for refreshments. I would use local transport to gain access to this to visit as a tourist but also be vigilant to not stand out, have your witts about you as there is always an opportunist who would take a chance like anywhere in the world.
