The construction of venues for the Rio 2007 Pan American Games left a legacy of sports infrastructure in the region. With the Rio 2016 Games, the existing sports legacy will be expanded, encouraging young people from the deprived parts of the neighborhood to participate in sporting activities even more. The creation of the X-Park, to be located inside Deodoro Sports Complex, will reinforce local youngsters’ prospects for social and sporting development. Covering an area of 500,000 sq m, this will be the city’s second largest park, behind Flamengo Park. In Deodoro, the benefits will reach the greatest concentration of young people in the metropolitan area of Rio de Janeiro.
Also located in the western part of Rio de Janeiro, the Deodoro zone relies on train lines to connect the neighbourhood to the centre and, from there, using other modes of transport, the rest of the city. The venue construction for the 2007 Pan and Parapan American Games is being used for the Rio 2016 Olympic Games. Among the newly built venues, the X-Park deserves a special mention. Home to canoe slalom, BMX and mountain bike, after the Games the area will be transformed into the second largest park in the city, with a total space of 500,000 square metres open for use by the population – a necessity for the region, which is densely populated and in need of leisure space.
