UFJF’s Sensorial Garden aims the exploration of the touch and smell senses. It allows visitor to escape from routine in favor of relaxation. It is divided in four parts (fire, water, earth and air), so that each one of those steps has different kinds of plants and lands. The visitor is asked to be blindfolded and to take off their shoes, to enhance the experience.
The recently renovated complex covers two swimming pools, sports court for futsal, volleyball, basketball, and handball, soccer field, soccer society court, two tennis courts, a shuttlecock and a badminton court, athletics track, gym and pilates studio.
