In the district there are waterfalls, farms, stables and trails, and much of its length is taken by the State Park of Pedra Branca, an environmental preservation area. Including the area of Vargem Pequeno, it is a vast rural area situated beyond Barra da Tijuca, Recreio and Jacarepaguá, that borders with green mountains where adventure hikers reach natural rivers and pool-like ponds, and which limits embrace the Parque Ecológico Municipal da Prainha and Grumari, a totally wild coast of white sand beaches.
The neighborhood is one of the fastest growing in the city of Rio de Janeiro, having gone from 9,306 inhabitants in 2000 to 14,039 in 2010.
Nowadays residents and visitors evading the crowds in Barra and Rio’s zona sul, enjoy Vargem Grande as an incredible gastronomic hub. Nearby there is Guaratiba, also with outstanding regional Brazilian and seafood restaurants, and with the renown gardens by Brazilian landscaping master Burle Max.
