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.

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

This place is massive. You can do pretty much anything here. There are courts for tennis etc. It is a great place to hang out during the day. It is advised against hanging out at night but this is pretty common sense for any park anywhere in the world.

Beautiful park and clean, there are a lot of place to do different sports, also there are some professional teams using this space to training. Its good for workout in a public place. Also there is a wonderful landscape of the mountains.

A great place to visit on the weekends to see all the people relaxing and having fun with their families. There are a lot of interesting and varied sports going on. Anything you can think think of is part of the park: tennis courts, running track, bike ciruit, futbol fields, volleyball, basketball, BMX, exercise equipment, rugby teams, rollerskating. It is...

You most likely won't be able to see the whole park in one visit, it is gigantic. There is so much to do and such a nice place to relax, play, exercise, etc. There's so much that goes on on the weekends (including free salsa lessons and an organic farmer's market- on Saturday mornings). Sundays are the busiest, and during... More

I am a sucker for urban green spaces, and Carolina Park is fantastic. It is wonderful to see so many people out enjoying nature in the middle of a city. We have walked to and through this park numerous times during the day and always felt very safe. The botanical gardens are amazing - well laid out and with nice... More
