A leisure area for contemplation or strolls and fruit picking, the Forest Garden is a 12,5 hecatares land, founded in 1932 by botanic Joaquim dos Santos Lima Junior, who went into expeditions in the Desengano Park and catalogued several orchid and bromeliad species.

Specimen and flowerbeds are preserved in the garden since its foundation along with its neoclassical style gate. The garden hosts 15,000 seedlings among fruit, ornamental and reforestation specimen, as well as a rosarium. Along with the garden there are also a Forest Police Battalion and the City Departments of Agriculture and Environment.
