  • El Ejido is one of the many metropolitan parks in Quito. It is not so big, but it has plenty of trees and spaces to rest. During weekends there are plenty of activities going on such as theater, sports and music. Everyday there is a handcraft market. During nighttime the park is not very safe, and it is a little bit dirty - it is hard to find a spot without garbage in the grass.
  • A big place. There are many trees and a library.
