I was looking for the the Casa dela Cultura when I stumbled upon this attraction. It is huge, clean park with lots of things to do. I admired several statues located near each other. I visited on a weekday and the park was not busy at all.

This park is wonderful to visit on the weekend especially. Many families and beautiful walks and trees. Vendors selling artisan goods and art on the weekend also. Great place to chill, but be sure to watch your belongings, as pickpockets can be in the area. Safe otherwise, give it a try.

Great for kids with lots of activities plus you can rent bikes and tricycles. When we where there, there was an art show in the park plus handicrafts.

Went to check out the park to find some authentic street art. Some of the paintings aren't originals but some where. Also a place for cheap souvenirs. Got a Ecuador Beatles of the Amazon shirt for $3. Can't beat that. Also good for people watching.

Not amazing, but fun to walk through en route to another destination. We stopped for 10 minutes to watch an impromptu dance show. Good enough!

It was a well maintained park with lots of walkways and some fountains. It is a great place for a picnic under a tree or stroll.

Very nice, well maintained park next to the new town. Great weekend market with a variety of stalls. More variety and more reasonably priced than at Otavalo market.

We stopped here to see what was going on and spent a good portion of the rest of the day walking around and just hanging out in the park. The playground equipment was nice for kids and there was a lot of cheap vendors for snacks and drinks.

This park always has someone performing, lots of local and political humor. Plenty for kids to do. The vendor food here is good, but make sure any meat you buy is cooked all the way (from experience). On the weekends, there is even more art than normal, a great time to shop for souvenirs!

This park was across from our hotel: Hilton Colon. There was craft market there on weekends and lots of locals enjoying the park. There was nothing different being sold here, than anywhere else in the country.
