I mean, if you are just walking around it's worth seeing it. Especially at night. Beautiful game of lights. But that's it. Don't expect more than that.

You will most likely pass through the park on your travels through Loja so no need for a special trip. In any case it's not worth it. Just another square in a South American town. Nice but not special. There was also very little life...More

Lots of activity around this park on a regular basis. Safe place to hang out and watch people live their simple stress free lives. Food options around the square and easy access to buses and taxis. Nice small town atmosphere.
