Brazil’s Forest Park on the south side of the city of Brazil has 49 acres of woodland, a 1/4 mile paved walking/go-cart track, 40,000 square foot wood playground, a four-field baseball complex, 13 picnic shelters, and a 267,000 gallon swimming pool. The park has hosted the Brazil Rotary 4th celebration for over 80 years. Its band shell has been home to the Brazil Concert Band since the 1920s and can easily seat 700 people. A large pavilion can easily put up to 1,000 people under roof for concerts and convocations. The Chafariz dos Contos (from "contos de réis", a former Brazilian currency) was given by the country of Brazil as a gift to the city, as a symbol of friendship, and was assembled in Forest Park in 1956. It is a replica of the original fountain located in Ouro Preto, State of Minas Gerais, Brazil, built in 1774.
