Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Fantastic any day but super popular on the weekends. Plenty to do, see and eat. Definitely the Central Park of Quito in a great area.

Beautiful public green space with just about everything. One of the best skateboard parks I've ever seen. A botanical garden that's more like a university botanical research laboratory. Tons of open space for picnicking or just hanging out. Some kiosks selling local goods, and even a ceviche stand.

Nice park with lots to do for kids. You can rent boats, bicycles, there's a great playground and skateboarding areas. Just beware of unsavoury characters trying to sell things.

We went, as recommended, on a Sunday. It really bowled us over and made us wish we were there as a family with young kids. It's a lovely, gentle family place, with so much for the kids to do at not too much expense. A real paradise, where everyone got along! I saw very few tears, and even the many unleashed dogs all seemed to be getting along with each other with no barking.

The park covers acres, far too much for us oldies to explore. We were even pushed to get around all the food stalls and decide what to have for lunch. As foreigners, the food was seriously weird, but we ordered what seemed to be a bit of everything and took enormously loaded paper plates onto the grass to eat our food with a plastic fork. I wouldn't say we loved it all, but there was lots we did love and we were definitely full -- and all for some ludicrously small amount of money. We had ice creams too, and I had a candy floss.

There were pedal boats, kids playgrounds, kids powered cars to drive around in, pony rides, bouncy castles, bubbles big and small, and so much more. On top of that there were museums and gardens to visit, some with a small extra cost. There was also a big market area.

I wish it would come to my home town!

Fantastic huge park in the middle of Quito. Spent hair a day and didn't see it all. Here for 11 days so breaking it up. Beautiful space, people exercising, yoga, a running track, soccer, a lazy river with paddle boats to rent, you name it. Food vender around the place as well as water and frozen treats. Great way to spend an afternoon.

Nice park to go for a stroll any time of the day.

It's much bigger than you would expect in a first glance.

It has kids parks, basketball, soccer, tennis courts, weird art, a little pond with pedal boats, a botanical garden, a big running track, bike paths, a skate park, a dirty bike park and much more.

Bathrooms are available in lots of places and it feels pretty secure.

If you are a runner, this park offers many paths, so you wont get bored.

This park is so fun to take a Sunday stroll in and watch locals enjoy walking and bike trails, a skate park, volleyball, basketball, and soccer courts, along with more kid-friendly activities. When the weather is good, hanging out in Parque La Carolina can't be beat!
