Built on land reclaimed from the sea, Parque do Flamengo is the busiest in Rio. It stretches from downtown to Botafogo across three different neighbourhoods: Glória, Catete and Flamengo. Designed by the famous Brazilian landscaper Burle Marx, this green band of land by the sea is where the locals come for a little fresh air and to catch up on their favorite sport activities. On Sundays, the avenues through the Park are closed to traffic.
