  • I love it! It's been remodeled and still it holds a variety of the most giant and ancient trees of the city. Family-friendly and perfect for walks.
  • You can see lots of nice paintings.(half of the park is under construction)
  • Needs a lot of facilities and services, beginning with decent parking places and police.
  • A place for the family. But also there're a lot of people with different interests. So you need to be aware. It's near Casa de la Cultura. It's surrounded for pretty much every important public transportation line.
  • Can buy some nice stuff

Where to stay in Quito
