We love this park, so much to see And do. My granddaughter loved it, so many playgrounds she would go from one to another. Rented her bike to ride as well as little peddle cars. She even had her face painted for $2. My husband loves the food. I love to shop for many different local items. A great place... More

Great area for people watching, including local sports as well as strolling in the gardens or jogging. It is easily accessible by public transit, has booths with local crafts, mostly textiles and the wonderful National Museum is just across the street. The huge market of crafts & textiles is only about 4 blocks away (go past the Hilton Hotel) and... More

Quito is a very busy city with traffic and sidewalks that bustle with both tourists and local folks. Visiting Parque Ejido was relaxing. Cypress trees and palms line the pathways, and there are plenty of statues for history seekers. This is a huge park. I welcomed the benches where I could sit, be, and do not much of anything by...

We were in Quito on a Saturday and Sunday and spent part of both days in this wonderful park. There were vendors, performers, families walking or lounging under a tree, kids and adults riding bikes on the lanes that wind through the park, and all kinds of folks sitting on benches reading or just people watching. No one bothers you... More

The weekend is the time to visit with tons of local vendors and performers in the park. Very large space so even though it may be very busy it is a great spot to relax

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!
