The Parque Florestal de Monsanto offers great potential for recreation.
The woods are not always a welcoming place for man... However, they contrast with several clearings and panoramic sweeping views over the city and river, wich makes the park a very attractive location.
The Parque Desporto no Penedo has three basketball fields of public access with unrestricted areas along the Moinho do Penedo.
It also has a multipurpose court, two dirt race tracks, several traditional games and playgrounds and lighting - allowing it´s use use at night. If you're a "radical" in nature, then this is the place for you.
There are also outdoor showers, fitness circuits, bicycle washers, and we can still find the wonderful viewpoint and the Keil Amaral amphitheater with a great view of the river.
The Parque Desporto no Penedo has two entrances, one by the Parque no Ar e Sobre Rodas, and another near the Moinho do Penedo.
The best way to get to know it is by visiting the Espaço Monsanto, located on the northern slope of the Park.
