We loved the walk by the water. Close to the big star in the street for photos. Nice restaurants to eat at along the water. Lots of shops close by.

The park is interesting enough and can be approached from Marco Zero for a small fee. You can also see it from one of the catamaran tours of the rivers and they sail fairly close to the park which is near enough for me.

You'd better take a boat or water taxi to explore this park. Hot spot with Carnaval activity. The sculpture is lotus symbol on the top with some snakes around. It is made of copper. You can access Park too. So don't hesitate to visit.

Everywhere in Recife you can find along the streets and the squares and on modernist buildings of the last 4 decades, monumental art works created by Francisco Brennand. (*) To me, art in a museum is interesting and comfortable but somehow clean and artificial. Art...More
