If traveling with children, the City Park is one of the places you should visit.
With about 83 hectares and 10km of paths, it is the largest urban park in the country. One of the rare characteristics in the world of this park is that it extends to the Atlantic Ocean.
Here you will find lakes, flora and fauna varied, quite nice to make you forget the whirlwind of the city. Long walks, picnics or just enjoy the time, are some of the suggestions for the visitor.
