Conservation units (UCs) are legally protected territorial spaces that provide outstanding natural features, however (UCs) do not ensure that the areas are fully preserved. Brazil has a vast biological diversity, having several protected areas, these protected spaces have a fundamental role in the protection of nature, fauna and flora. The aim of this study was to make a literary review of the articles published about one of the existing conservation units of the capital of Amazonas, the Mindu Municipal Park, chosen for being located in the heart of Manaus about fifteen minutes from downtown. Parque do Mindu, is the dwelling that houses several species of fauna and flora of the region: animals like Sauim-de-Coleira (Saguinus bicolor). The maintenance of the park as observed in loco, it is noticeable that suspended trails are with maintenance on time. It is noteworthy that existing activities in urban parks aim to promote environmental education (EA). Do Mindu Municipal Park is a (UC) example of perseverance to exist today, thanks to the efforts of society and federal, state and municipal laws. Literary resources about the Park are of great importance to understand the history and development of a conservation unit located in an urban area feeling the impacts of anthropization.
