Also known as "Aterro do Flamengo", the Brigadeiro Eduardo Gomes Park is the largest leisure area of Rio de Janeiro. The place has a strong sport tradition. Flamengo Park is the arrival point of marathons, besides being one of the main segments of Rio's Cycling Race, a Latin American race that allots the largest amount of points on the International Cyclist Union (UCI) world ranking. With gardens designed by world-known landscapist Burle Marx and sitting by the margins of Guanabara Bay, Flamengo Park holds the Modern Art Museum, the Carmem Miranda Museum and the Monument to the World War II Dead Soldiers, besides Marina da Glória, the main venue for the Rio 2007 Sailing competitions. During the Games, the Marathon (men’s and women’s) arrival points will be set up at the Flamengo Park, which will also stage the Race Walking and Cycling Road competitions.
