If you are visiting Quito this is the nicest area surrounding Parque La Carolina. The locals come out on the weekend especially. There are sports venues, paddling boats, fun food vendors galore. It is clean and beautiful and a wonderful place to stroll and relax.

If you are into botanical gardens, this is a pretty neat one to see. There are several different environments for the various plants, all along a winding path that takes you through even more fauna.
