Our boat tour cruised past these statues; we did not stop. Since our boat tour was in a language we did not understand, we do not know what was said about them.

An imaginative location for a Park of sculptures . The sculptures , some of them really erotic are unfortunately lacking some protection and maintenance but are really nice pieces of art ! We were there to watch the sunset and the Park shows then another interesting view , Unfortunately , my camera and i.phone were in the car !

On a reef, right in front of "Praça do Marco Zero", the monumental "Parque das Esculturas de Francisco Brennand" was inaugurated in the year 2000, celebrating the 500 years of Brazil's discovery by Portuguese navigators. Right after its inauguration, the park became quite controversial, due to the erotic characteristics of Brennand's sculptures. Controversial or not, the sculptures are fascinating and a must-see while in Recife. The magnificent "Coluna de Cristal", a 32 mts. high column is seen from many points of Recife. The park is reachable by boats leaving from the pier at "Praça do Marco Zero" (at a small fee) or by car, coming through "Avenida Brasília Teimosa". As it is somehow isolated, avoid going alone at all times - and "never" in the evenings. Restoration works are urgently needed, as corrosion and vandalism have affected some of the 90 sculptures. Enjoy!

It's worth a visit, but pictures are better taken from the other side of the canal, where you can get the whole park in the picture.

We loved the walk by the water. Close to the big star in the street for photos. Nice restaurants to eat at along the water. Lots of shops close by.

The park is interesting enough and can be approached from Marco Zero for a small fee. You can also see it from one of the catamaran tours of the rivers and they sail fairly close to the park which is near enough for me.

You'd better take a boat or water taxi to explore this park. Hot spot with Carnaval activity. The sculpture is lotus symbol on the top with some snakes around. It is made of copper. You can access Park too. So don't hesitate to visit.

Was taken here by the tour guide. We drove across the causeway to the park which is very narrow and it is interesting to encounter vehicles going the other direction.

The park is filled with sculptures by Francisco Brennand to celebrate the 500th anniversary of the discovery of Brazil in 2000. The sculptures are "interesting" and involve or resemble various male and female body parts. I am not much into modern sculpture so I didn't really "get it", but the view from being between the city and the Atlantic ocean was astounding and worth the time spent.

Unfortunately the park is deteriorating rapidly from the exposure to the salt air and standard Brazilian public maintenance. There are many people fishing from the jetty and a few enterprising people are prepared to sell cold drinks and snacks, but they are not official or regulated. Also as stated in a previous review I recommend caution as it an isolated area with restricted access and a know spot visited by tourist.

The sculpture parc can be viewed from Recife Antigo waterfront eastward. In order to get to the park you need to cross the water and best to take a combined ticket that takes you to the sculpture park as well as provides you a tour around the canals of Recife, showing you the 'Victorian' houses and ancestry of Pernambuco.
