Things to do (for free) at Parque Lage:
Have a picnic
Feed the monkeys (not sure if you're supposed to)
Explore the princess tower and the "caves"
Swing from hanging vines
Look at fishes in a small aquarium
Look at the beautiful art from the art school
And more - all while under the gaze of Christ the Reedemer.

Parque Lage is right next to the Botanical Gardens (which we haven't been to yet). It offers a nice reprieve from the hot Rio sun!
