Located in the middle of the Quito central business district lies Parque La Carolina.
This 165-acre expanse is a popular attraction for tourists and local families. Rich with activities, countless people come here to paddleboat, play volleyball and soccer games, and to cycle and jog along the winding paths. The highlight of this park is the Jardin Botanico, a botanical garden with native habitats that include wetlands, cloud forest, and grasslands among several others.
There is also an ethno-botanical garden that explores the various plants commonly used among indigenous populations, an Amazonian greenhouse, and an orchid greenhouse. Kids have access to a massive discovery area that's filled with colorful play structures and activities.Places nearby:
