More space, fewer people

This is a nice park, very big, not quite as accessible for me so i don't visit often enough. But it is great for walking and feeling like your not in the city anymore.

I am fortunate enough to live a stones throw away from this absolute gem and before getting my new job I took advantage of living this close by going everyday! Nowadays I can only make it on a Saturday and Sunday morning but ALWAYS choose a nice long walk over a lie in..what does that tell you! I have two... More

First of all, the park is very close to the most cosmopolitan areas of the city. Once you get there, it feels as if you were in the middle of the country side, far from all the traffic, noise and people. The park is clean, the air is fresh and there are trails you can walk with amazing views of... More

If you want to train at 9000 feet above the sea level, Parque Metropolitano is the place. Great trails for hiking, trail running and mountain bike. Wonderful place to enjoy the city and near valley’s views. Best hours to train from 6am to 9am Monday to Friday. Weekends you can go any time during the day. In a cold morning... More

This park is great for outdoor hiking and mountain biking. We hiked about 4 km of the park, including two of the overlooks on the east side of the park and the northern end of the park. The park is huge, especially for a city park, and there seems to be a lot to explore. There are trails everywhere that... More

Very nice park in a busy urban area of the city. Many active people running around/biking. On weekends there are crafts and venders of all sorts. No need to visit Octavalo with this area so close.

The park has amazing geographical features, making it a real treat to walk, jog, or bike on. It's usable all year long, having long summer weather and short rain storms. Even for a walk with the dogs, it's a great place to be, with amazing view of Quitos valleys.

The title basically says it all. It's a bit of a hike just to get to the entrance from the base of the city and public transportation, aside from taxis do not come up this high. Recommend using a taxi -- cost is approximately 1 USD from Avenida de las Americas where it meets the stadium.

It's a park. If you don't have kids, it's not worth your time. If you have kids, it's well worth a visit because they have several nice playgounds and plent of room to run around. Bring water!

The whole town rides bikes on Sunday and no alcohol. Pretty important info to know before you visit. They rent bikes on the side of the road, we did, and it was fun. We did visit several parks. Note, they have free bikes that you can take and put back, they have white plastic wheel covers over them, so you... More
