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

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
