Metrô Barra Alvorada
Barra da Tijuca may not be renowned for having a plethora of open space away from the beach, but sandwiched between Jacarepaguá Airport and the Cidade da Música is a green bosque officially known as Parque Arruda Câmara. The well-maintained escape from the maddening buzz of Avenida das Américas is protected by thick vegetation and the bike path is a favourite for cyclists and runners, whilst football pitches, volleyball courts and barbecues are also available. The lake segment, meanwhile, is perfect for a more sedate stroll amidst rare flora and fauna.
