I would frequent this park if I lived in the area. The park is very clean and all the facilities are well maintained, You can find cool monuments inside the woods.

A place to escape the smog and the noisy errands of Quito city. Go for a run or a walk, or just to calm your mind doing yoga. You will be gifted to spot at least 4 different types of Humming Birds, Vermilion Flycatcher or the Southern Yellow-billed Grossbeak.

The dominant trees are eucalyptus, introduced from Australia, so apart from feeling like we were at home the eucalyptus smell was a very nice... More

As Quito can become pretty dense at some hours of the day, I recommend a walk (and a nap? ) at La Carolina. They are tons of nice places to rest. There is also some permanent exhibitions or museums. And the Botanical garden which is really worth a visit too. Have fun !!

The park is twice the size of Central Park in NYC with vistas both east and west that are spectacular. The variety of trails will fit any interest. Plenty of picnic areas and play areas for the kids.

We love to visit this park on Sunday afternoons as a family. This is a great spot to take a picnic lunch and a blanket. There are a lot of different places to choose from and several playgrounds for children to enjoy. With hiking trails, a soccer field, a dog park, and covered shelters, you have several options to choose... More

Nice trees, great trails, excellent views and vistas from a number of look-outs throughout the park. Great place to bring your dog for a walk. The park is very clean and all the facilities are well maintained. BBQ areas can be rented for weekend outings.
