The scenery seems to change often here. On some days there are vendors lined up on one path selling all types of good. Other days, it is more tranquil. There are play areas for children with various gym equipment. There is a small children's library at one end across from the National Museum. There are not a lot of places... More

Lets start with a safety tip: Visit it ONLY during the daytime. At night this place and some of the surrounding area is not the safest place, especially for a tourist. The park is neither small or too big and its a great time to enjoy some relaxation or maybe rent a bike to go around. Now, if you visit... More

Did an early morning walk on a Saturday through and around the park. Saw the vendors setting up for the day, children playing at the various play areas, people renting bikes, etc. Many statues of Equador historical figures to check out. Doing a perimeter walk you will see lots of different buildings across from the park. Worth checking out.

We were staying at the Hilton Colon which is just across the street (Avenida Patria) from Parque El Ejido. Be careful of the vehicular traffic if trying to cross the street to get to the park; the pedestrian right-of-way apparently doesn't exist in Quito! There is a nice sculpture in front of the monument arch: "La Lucha Eterna" ("The Eternal... More

This is a fairly large park with art displays on the weekends, as well as many vendors. Unfortunately, my camera/phone was stolen as I was making a purchase from a vendor. There was no one around and this boy came running out of nowhere to snatch my phone and keep,running. SO! Be careful!

We spent several fun hours shopping, people watching and taking photographs. It was on a weekend which is when we suggest you visit. The vendor area had just about anything you would expect like blankets, shirts, jewelry, art, hammocks, purses, toys, knick-knacks and more. Plenty of food vendors, too. We also saw a troupe of street entertainers. Everyone from the... More

Visit on a Sunday when there are the most artwork vendors. There are some very good artists represented. Inspect carefully as many are reproductions that are pollute with the tourists!

Go here on a weekend and just sit back and relax! So much going on around you that you can just people watch and be entertained for hours! Diverse.

You can rent a bike in the park on the weekend. Sundays they close down the roads from north to south allowing bikers a chance to get some worrisome free riding in. If you have kids, they have great playgrounds. There is a market set up on the weekends as well.

Large enough to have many visitors and still not feel crowded on the weekend. Sundays are a great day as you can rent a bike for ~$3 per hour and ride streets that are closed to car traffic providing a nice safe family outing. Also there are great souvenirs to be found and artist set up as well. Nice to... More
