Picnicking in Aterro do Flamengo
A park stretches the entire coastline of Guanabara Bay, through districts like Gloria, Flamengo, and Botafogo, and its lands reclaimed from the sea have become an open-air rec center open to all Cariocas. In a more than 250-acre greenspace, the area called Aterro do Flamengo, or Flamingo Park, features playing fields, bike trails and, naturally, beaches (though pollution, sadly, makes them unsuitable for swimming). There’s also lots of parkland for picnicking and, since 2016, the Marina da Glória, a pleasure port with smart bars and restaurants.
