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

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
