I think the largest, and most active park in rio is the Aterro do Flamengo.

Parque Brigadeiro Eduardo Gomes (A.K.A - Aterro do Flamengo)


http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedi...ngo-Gloria.jpg

This park is a huge hilling area, its a result of the disassemble of Santo Antônio Hill and Castelo Hill, and the park construction had been finished in 1965. The park is a project of Roberto Burle Marx, a famous paisagist, the same that projected copacabana's world-famous sidewalks.

This park is the largest leisure area in Rio, and one of the most frequented. It has soccer fields, tennis courts, it holds the MAM (Modern Art Museum), a Theater (Vivo Rio), a memorial to the WW2 Dead Soldiers, a marine and a lot of green áreas. The park has 120 hectares. It has a large beach area, which is inapropriate for swimming because Guanabara's Bay water is very polluted. The park has a large road (Av. Infante Dom Henrique), which is one of the main connections between the South Zone and the Downtown of Rio de Janeiro. Great part of the buildings in the park had been projected by Affonso Eduardo Reidy, a brazilian modernist architect.

This park is mostly used by people who live in the south zone of Rio de Janeiro, specially the neighborhoods of Flamengo, Glória, Catete and Botafogo.

Microsoft Office

If you downloaded the Microsoft Office Ultimate 2007 Office system Beta 2 Technical Refresh you may have noticed that all the Office splash screens and icons are now more slick looking and different. They area partially-rounded box shape, as seen in the Office Professional 2007 Key here, and I think it adds a little something to the look and feel of Microsoft Office Enterprise 2007 Key. Of course this isn't by any means a big new feature, but I am always interested in little UI tweaks that Office 2010 Standard Key draw the user a bit more toward a product based on the look, which the new icons in Microsoft Office Standard 2010 does.

Valencia, Spain, will has a Central Park



That's the place where it will be created



It's going to replace the workshops and tracks before the Valencia's Nord Station. The AVE (High Speed Train) will arrive under ground.

Gustafson will design the park.

The new Valencia park is gonna be quite futuristic, it reminds a little of the Andre Citroen Parc in Paris, expecially for the water and fountain arrangements.
