“Beautiful Park”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 February 2013

This is the best park to visit on weekends. It doesn't look over the city, but has a lot to offer. There are food vendors, tons of kids running around playing with plastic cars, etc. that they put out for them, lots of play ground equipment and on weekends there is an artisan/art market. It is usually buzzing with people! The market has quite a bit to offer and the art around the outside is gorgeous!

“Lovely park with weekend artisans market”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 February 2013

This is a lovely park in the heart of Quito. It's a nice place to relax and watch local people with their kids, engaged in all sorts of recreation from playing football to pedaling little cars around a track. On weekends there is a big artisans market with a wide variety of handicrafts, much (but not all) of it made in Ecuador. A good place to buy souvenirs.

“Fun on a Sunday afternoon”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 January 2013

Lots of food. Lots of kids. Lots of laughter. Crafts to buy, and just a nice stroll. A very pleasant way to see Ecuadorian families at play.

“In the center of Quito, next to Casa de Cultura...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 January 2013

One of central park. Next to it one finds Casa de Cultura, Museum de Banco Central (gold artifacts and more...). Every weekend park is a site of artisan trade.

“Great, fun park”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 November 2012

Great place to hang out. Went on a weekend and there were puppet shows and magic shows. Along the perimeter on Sundays is a lot of art for sale. Touristy stuff for sale on weekends as well. Easy to find food. Good people-watching. Felt safe.
