Quito’s El Ejido Park: Parque El Ejido in Ecuador

Posted in: Ecuador Travel, Quito Ecuador

Do your kids love playground equipment? Our daughter sure does! And we found lots of it at Parque El Ejido.

El TelefériQo, Parque La Carolina and Parque Vulqano are also fun places to visit with your children while in Quito.

Parque El Ejido in Quito

If you have children aged 5-10 you’ll want to check out El Ejido Park (Parque El Ejido) in Quito.

We love to spend family time strolling around a park. So we were excited to find a park with a large area of playground equipment just a short walk from where we were staying.

While she played on the zip line (it was addictive) Bryan and I enjoyed chatting on a nearby bench, where we could keep a close eye on her.

The café was comfy, with plush seats and a nice view of the surrounding park.  There was also a small art gallery attached to the café, and clean bathrooms with paper and soap!


If you’re in Quito and have the time, this park is worth a visit! Here are some other things to do in Quito.
