Because of its many springs, locals refer to the 60,000-acre Brasília National Park as Água Mineral (Mineral Water). There are two spring-fed pools where people can cool off, dressing rooms, and picnic areas. Created to protect the water supply of Lago Paranoá, the park also preserves a bit of the region's cerrado, or grassy plains interspersed with thickets and woods. An informative trail that runs through mostly flat terrain starts at the visitor center, where you can pick up maps and brochures.
