  • This is a lovely park, with many trails and good biking trails, and places where you can find tranquility, too. There are many flowering trees and shrubs and great views of Quito below, and if not cloudy, you can even see the Teliferico across the way. We were there on a weekend just after Carnival and there were many families enjoying picnics and just family fun. The hamburgers at the little hot dog stand were quite good. If you have a day to relax, we recommend this place! Just take a taxi..
  • One of the best places in Quito to have a walk. It also has a magnificent sight of the city, specially of midtown. Additionally, you will be able to see some exotic birds.
  • Garden with amazing city view. It usually has some exhibitions in the central building but not when we went there. Lot of locals also come here over the weekends. Worth visiting for the Quito city view
  • Excellent park, nice for pets.
  • Best view of historic centre. Well naturalistic park.
