This park is very nice and has great views of the city and I would frequent this park if I lived in the area, but there is not much for tourists to do. It is a very peaceful park and lots of people with their dogs (there is even a dog agility course). We took a taxi to the park... More

This is a great place to take a hike or ride a mountain bike. It's a forest that has become a national park. You can find cool monuments inside the woods. You can also get a beautiful view of the city from here.

Big park in the center of Quito. You can rent a place and do you own barbecue on the grill right there. Not many options to spend the time. But it's a nice place to be in touch with nature, has some sports' facilities as well. Entrance is free, but if one decides to rent one of the many barbecue... More

This park is one of the biggest in Quito. It is a great place for a walk, a picnic or to go running. Parts of the park are forest, there are BBQ areas, playgrounds for kids and it is big enough so that you'll always find a quite place.

One of the largest parks in Quito. It's nice but many fires have happened in the last few years, that caused a lot of damage to the birds (there's birdwathing) and the rest of the fauna and flora.
