  • The park is just down the street from the mercado artesenal. The park also has a little art market and along one street vendors bring their painting to sell. Also a good place to get street food for $...  more »
  • Quito has many parks and this is one of them. You can go to spend the day sitting in the grass. On weekends there are craftsmen where you can buy typical things

  • Large green space with lots of people, vendors with artwork and food. Easy access to public transport and a nice way to get from Mariscal to Old Town if you're walking.  more »

  • This is a great park in Quito. Plenty of green space and some good nearby food options. Easy access to trolleys for traveling to and from the park. We usually go here to buy gifts and crafts from locals on the north side of the park. There is a cheaper market about 5 minutes north from the park at the artisan market where you can find the same items.
  • Beautiful park. On Saturdays there is artwork for sale and this makes the environment of the park seem much nicer. If people are visiting I would recommend stopping by.
  • Good daily markets here and plenty of street food vendors. Park is kept fairly well.
  • A nice park for a quiet break in the city center, always some artesan vendors around. Part of the park is currently closed off due to the construction of a metro station.
  • A bigger park in the center of the city. Many locals set up stands selling crafts, food, fruit, etc. It's nice to walk around, but not a whole lot to do.
