This large park incorporates opportunities for paid activities: the Botanical Gardens, paddle boating, and pony rides; as well as an open track and bike path that are very busy on weekends. Very popular with local families.

Dozens of soccer games, US football, a dirt bike trail, free zumba classes, food vendors, lovers, botanic garden, and so much more. This park is an amazing place to walk, jog, ride a bicycle, or just sit and watch the world go by.

I visit this place at least a couple times a week. I like to read there. I like cotton candy which is sold there. And last weekend, on my way to QuiCentro I was sidetracked by a free concert and the band was amazing. Reminds me of Golden Gate Park in San Francisco.

Following an excellent meal at Capuleto, we went for a walk around Parque Carolina. It immediately reminded me of one of the reasons why I like Quito so much. The park was crowded (you’d not find that in the UK), and all sorts of people were enjoying themselves. There were the guys in the skateboard area. Some of them are... More

The park is huge and has several fields for football, basketball and volleyball. More south you can rent pedalboats or relax on the grass.

The park itself is huge, plus there is a Botanical Garden within the park that is just gorgeous. It costs about $3.50 to get in to the Botanical garden, and it's worth every penny.

I loved walking around the park, it is right in the middle of the city, yet you do not feel you are surrounded by the Metropolis. I always visit the Botanical garden, it is one of my favorite places in Quito.

something for everyone. Not huge, but significant size. Many different types of activities. Park was crowded with people every day. Comfortable and fun.

Terrific attraction. Great park with lots to do and see. The botanical garden, full of indigenous species, is especially interesting.
