  • This park is huge and has entertaining spaces for children, enclosed spaces to train dogs and rent shacks to make barbecues with a beautiful view of the valley of cumbaya and tumbaco. However, what really makes this park magical are the green spaces in its natural state where one can walk, jog or ride a mountain bike in the picturesque chaquiñanes (caminitos) that have the forests that are mostly eucalyptus. I use this park to go jogging with my dog, relax and enjoy nature.

  • Large park; clean and tidy. It is a good idea to go with comfortable clothes as it is very large. It has baths and drinkers.
