Nice looking park, fairly large

I did not stay long in El Ejido, which is across the street from a main area of hotels. There are lots of cabs nearby. Not too far is the party area of La Marsical. It rained... read more

By chance, we first went to the park on a Sunday. What fun! Lots of families out, lots of couples strolling about, so many children and puppies...! There are lots of vendors selling the usual clothing and trinkets; food vendors selling grilled meats and ice cream; clowns, mimes, jugglers, and other entertainers; lots of fun children's activities; and much more....

Easily to find park in the heart of the downtown area of Quito, HUGE area with many vendors to buy anywhere from art work, to jewelry to clothing. Huge play area for the kids even a small version of a zipline. Definitely to check out, beautiful landscape and shade trees to enjoy lunch under.

Big, grassy Parque El Ejido was located across the street from our hotel. It is the largest park in central Quito, and is a favorite weekend spot for street vendors, picnickers and scores of youth playing ball games. Since my spouse and I arrived for our 8-day tour of Ecuador on a weekend, we enjoyed people-watching and strolling beneath its... More

Onc could spend all day just wandering through the Ejido, looking at the vast array of artwork, sampling the food, etc. It's amazing how much "better" it is than it was 45 years agao, when last I was in Quito.

This is a great place to relax after shopping at the Mercado Artesanal. You can sit in the shade and watch the fountains. You will hear a lot of traffic, but that is everywhere in Quito.

On Sunday's in Ecuador it is family day. You find very few businesses open and most people are with their families at home or in parks such Parque El Ejido. Artisans are out exhibiting their creations, children are playing in the park and families are having picnics.

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...
