the jewel of the city
Sep 2019
this park was rescued from the urban developers and today is the perfect place to enjoy a morning or watch sunset, it was an ancient indian cementery and is located in the best neighbor of the city La Tola, a hill that overllook the entire city. very well kept and you can walk down the streets and find the traditional " mote de la tola " ommy, pieces of pork and salsa.

Good views and quiet
Jan 2020
Went there on a weekday and the place was remarkably calm and peaceful. No disturbing noise aand vendors! Most people seem to go here by car. There are a few staircases leading up towards the park from the west side, but because the park is fenced you are forced to walk to the main entrance (for cars).

There are great views over the old town and basilica. The glass pavilion is a pleasant structure, but not open to the public most of the time. There are no tall trees providing shade in the viewpoint area. The park is good for sports: run, workout, cycle...

On weekdays excellent for peace and quiet seekers.

Have a picnic and spend the day here. It is so calm but there are also trails to walk along and wonderful views of the city. I spent all day here just looking at the view and the sky and listening to the sounds of the outdoors.

Amazing views
Aug 2019 • Friends
Wonderful views to the city and to the Andes. Windy place what makes it good to fly kites.There were people playing football, volleyball, basketball and practising taekwondo. Nice place to go for a walk and all the amazing views around you. A lot of people were walking their dogs. Crystal Palace and the big Quito sign were also there.

Great Views, Relaxing Park
Sep 2018
This place is fun to go with family and friends when you have a lazy afternoon and want to be in a green space. The hummingbird statues are fun, and there is a large "QUITO" sign you can take pictures next to. There are also pathways to go for walks. Parking is easy. People lounge around, play soccer, and eat ice cream in the summer. There is also a stunning glass building for functions, and I believe a small restaurant sometimes.

Good place for walk and run close to the old town
Sep 2018 • Family
This park is a good option for walk and run, if you´re in the old town. There are easy trails and a very good viewpoint of the city and the mountains. In addition it is the best option in the city to fly kites.

A lovely greenspace
Mar 2019 • Business
Itchimbia is the site of the lovely crystal palace, as well as one of several large Quito signs. There is plenty of space to walk and wander around, and the views afforded from this hillside are simply magnificent. We explored here until almost dark, then walked to a nearby restaurant. It is a clean, safe, and attractive park.
