Quito, Ecuador

Parque La Carolina

Adjacent to Parque Metropolitano, the smaller Parque La Carolina is another great running option, with miles of paved paths encircling open green lawns and a paved, measured track at the center. The perimeter loop is a little over 3 km (2 miles), but there are lots of additional paths and the option of extending your run into Parque Metropolitano. Don’t miss the botanical gardens on the south end of the park.

Longer Run: Parque Metropolitano is just east, while Parque Arqueológico Rumipamba is 2 km to the west.
