We went to this park twice during our time in Quito. The first time, we just walked around the outer edges and looked at the crafts a bit. It seemed like a nice park, so when we had more time, we decided to walk through it on the paths and explore. Two police men came up to us when we were in the middle of the park. They only spoke Spanish, but we knew enough Spanish to understand them and were able to answer their questions. They warned us that the park was not safe and that we should leave quickly because it was dangerous there. They said that there were people there who would steal from us and/or attack us. We said okay told them we would leave right away. Which we did. We didn't necessarily see anyone that appeared to be a threat and we were never approached by anyone, but we took them at their word. . .because they were police officers and because we just didn't know. We don't know if this park is known as an unsafe place for tourists. I just read through reviews here and I see there are warnings for night time. I just wanted to relate our experience as something to be aware of. We didn't have any trouble, but it seemed that perhaps the police saw or were of aware of things we didn't see.

We used this park as a cut through to the historical district. On any given day, the park is active with food vendors and people strolling around, so it always felt safe. On the weekends, artisans set up shop and market their handiwork. This is always a fun place to wander through and they do an admirable job of maintenance despite the high usage.

The area used to be communal ground on the outskirts of the old city. Now pastures have been turned into a city park, quite centrally located between the old and the new town. Towards the north near the arc is where Avenida Amazonas begins. To date the park has maintained its pleasant green grassy spaces and trees. However. recently metro construction activities started and blue plastic barriers have appeared. Hope the park will not be affected. On Sundays there are local artists and craftsmen / women selling their wares. On weekdays there are many youngsters. Some were practising rap.

This is a wonderful place for good and cheap food and have tons of places to curl up with a good book. I wouldn’t recommend staying there after dark though. A large number of displaced peoples call this park home at night. During the weekends you can find beautiful art at good prices here.

We wandered here a few times, as it was just a couple of blocks from our hotel. We crossed it to both to and from our day-long walk to explore the Old Town. On Sundays there are many artists selling their work, mostly painters, of every style imaginable. They were asking very reasonable prices. Not a place to venture at night, though.
