  • Best park in Guayaquil, just the public space the city so desperately needed. Place for sports, with courts for basketball, soccer and volleyball. Platforms to skates and bikes. Nice water fountains around. Well planned, with lots of parking. Contains an amphitheater to watch live performances. Inside the complex there's a public stadium. Top soccer teams from Ecuador play there cause River Ecuador team is local there. Places to eat around. Some places serve coffee, but it is not good. Right now the park has 2 main areas, separated by a big highway. No pedestrian walk yet to cross so it is kind of dangerous because there is heaps of traffic, which makes it almost impossible to go from one side to the other. Currently authorities seem to be building an elevated pedestrian walk, so that would solved that problem. Parks is not finished yet, so there would be much more thing to see when everything is complete. The park is big and have multiple entrances, easy to get lost. If you are planning to meet someone better coordinate well cause the park it's huge. There is some nice water fountains along the main park street. Park is also relatively safe, with guards and everything. Pet friendly, many pet related activities during the weekend. Also there's is some people providing services in the park, such as bike rental, hover board rental and some weird games that I cannot recall the name of. Probably one of three best public places to visit in the city, competing directly with malecón and Parque histórico for the first place. Each place has its own charm, so it's hard to choose. As long as public places to do Sports, this one is by far the best in the city. People love it, we needed a park like this, one of the biggest in South America. Obbiusly, theres Not so much people during weekdays, much more people during the weekends
  • Big park with a lot of options but lack of trees
  • Lots of space, green areas for picnics plenty of options for the sporting types, Cycling, running, relaxing, food court available
  • This the biggest park in the country, this park has everything, you should visit this place
  • It's a good place for running or riding a bike. There's also a small artificial lake in which you can rent a pedal boat for a short time.

Where to stay in Guayaquil

Guayaquil's sprawling layout means its center isn't strictly defined, with accommodations spread throughout several neighborhoods. To enjoy the most iconic Guayaquil setting, stay in the riverside neighborhood of Las Penas. For easy access to public parks and some of the best attractions in Guayaquil, stay in the bustling district of La Bahia. If you want a more suburban experience, look farther north to the neighborhood of Simon Bolivar.
