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!

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

This is a lovely park to visit any day of the week but it is especially interesting on Saturdays and Sundays. This park is almost always busy with local Quitanos and their families strolling, playing and relaxing. If you see a large crowd check it out. They will probably be watching a local entertainer doing some sort of performance. They... More

We found this park by accident as it was near to our hotel and then spent a long time wandering through it and relaxing in it. There were several amazing children's playparks as well as the opportunity to hire bicycles for kids. As well, there was also a little market that sold lots of handicrafts and souvenirs which was really... More

We really liked it here because we found dozens of little shops with hand crafted clothes and artwork. They were mainly staffed by the Andean people who were dressed in very colorful and pretty native outfits. Many had babies bundled on their backs. Prices were reasonable and the people were very friendly. The park is also very nice to just... More

This was a pleasant walk from our hotel (about 7-10 blocks?). It's next to the Cultural Museum, has fields where soccer balls were being kicked around, has lots of play ground space for kids, and there were local handicraft stalls for shopping and browsing. Some of the products were priced best here, if they are the colors you want. There... More

So many different play areas. Kids can run from one to another one. On weekends little riding toys or bikes available to rent. Large market set up to buy Ecuadorian things. Food, ice cream & cotton candy to buy. Also many inflatable toys and bubbles. A nice way to spend the day without spending a lot of money.

This a very large park that is filled with locals doing all sorts of things - relaxing, laying volleyball games, picnicking, strolling. The grounds are filled with trees, grass, and small playgrounds for children. A very pleasant place to take in the local culture and rest between site visitations.
