It's a very nice place to visit but one must avoid visiting during the weekend since it's most of the time overcrowded and not easy to park. All that said, enjoy the rather unique view.

Went in the evening to see the sunset. Lots of locals swimming in the water and skateboarding in the trails. Nice place to take a stroll and look out at the city. Nice photo op in front of the big EU ❤️ BRASILIA sign.

It really worth swing by 4 pm, sit down, relax and enjoy the sunset behind the pilot plan. Besides the sunset you get the nice view of the city, mainly the congress.

This is great place to visit not only during the day but one of the best places in Brasilia, to watch the sunset and watch the city lights come on and also a different view of Ponte JK. Peaceful, relaxing and never crowded

Apparently the very small cathedral was the first stone monument constructed in Brasilia over 50 years ago. The views across the lake toward the city are great and well worth the visit.

A beautiful little shrine to Dom Bosco, away from the city with a most inspiring view over Brasilia. The marble glistens in the sunlight. Did not venture far into the park because of time constraints.

Dont miss the gregorian chants on Sunday. Park is also great for resting and walking about. Very safe, beautiful surroundings and furthermore the access is free. The only drawback is you probably need a car to get there since public transportation is uncomfortable and does not get there very often.

Friends with a car brought us here and many other places around Brasilia, where they live. This is a nice look out point. I understand there are also concerts here occasionally.

While no its not near anything, the Park is a great place to picnic with family and friends. I spent a few hours here lunching and resting. Lovely views of the lake and city.
