Global concern about climate change is present in different segments of society. These changes can also be measured by, for example, air quality standards in urban centers. The objective of this work is to monitor and analyze the amount of carbon monoxide of vehicular origin due to the burning of non-renewable fuels around the Vaca Brava Park, and to evaluate the consequences that this pollutant brings to the health of the population and to the environment. Park Vaca Brava is in the municipality of Goiânia, has an area of 79,890.63 m2. Samples were taken at three points in the Park, in the main busiest avenues in its surroundings, and the fourth sample was carried out inside the Park to compare the amount of carbon monoxide with the other points. These points were chosen because they present a large volume of people that pass in the place for the practice of physical exercises, and also for having a large agglomeration of vehicle in its surroundings, as a result of the commerce being quite busy in this region, due to this, the traffic vehicle is quite intense. In the period of study carried out in the park, there was a small change of this pollutant in November 2022, February, March and May 2023, in the other months no CO value was detected. It was also observed that the values of carbon monoxide in most of the months studied were not detected by the device. The green area of the park is quite important to regulate the air quality in this region and make it fresher and healthier for those who frequent the place.
