Enjoy Rodrigo de Freitas Lagoon and Botanical Garden Park entertainments
Chidren and parents have a wonderful place to spend a day in Rio. It's the Rodrigo de Freitas Lagoon, in South Zone. You'll meet the locals and experience their day to day activities. I'll guide you around the lagoon shore where a lot of entertainments (for all ages) take place: rent a bike to ride along the bike lines, take a walk and enjoy the large and green field for kids run and play. There are also several restaurants known by the locals as "quiosques" with live music show at night and a great variety of food and drinks all day long.
Just only 10 minutes distant we may visit the Botanical Garden which is part of the Tijuca National Forest and offers a wonderful green area with more than 8, 000 species of plants and around 150 different species of birds and mammals fairly easy to be observed during the visiting. There is an artificial lake full of different kind of rivers' fish, Amazonian lilly flowers and streams coming down the Corcovado slopes.
It'll be a day of fun and history for your family!
