“Quito Life”
Review of Parque La Alameda

Parque La Alameda
Ranked #84 of 267 things to do in Quito
Attraction details
Reviewed 9 September 2012

Very busy around lunch time. Great little food stands with delicious selections (I chose hot food that I got in a disposable bowl with a plastic spoon - sorry) and I did not get sick: BBQ pork, corn with a delicious marinated tomatoe and onion sauce, potato and fried banana for $2. Very friendly people. One of them told me a little about the history of the park. People watching was great. Snake and other reptile vendors (dead animals - they will cure all your ills), ice and ice cream vendors, sweets of all kinds, nice landscaping, people sitting out in the sun, offers from fortune tellers and more.

This park doesn't have any playgrounds, but there is a pond with rental pedal boats and canoes. The pedal boats are $2.50 USD. Plenty of food vendors with some really excellent offerings. Many restaurants all around the park. Very close to the Ecovia, metro bus, and trolebus stations. The observatory is also housed here in the park. Easy to walk from here to the Basilica del Voto Nacional as well.
