Bicentennial Park

Quito, Ecuador’s old airport now a park


Quito, Ecuador’s newest airport – Mariscal Sucre International Quito Airport – is now three years old.

The city’s old airport – which was in the center of the city, with a reputation for being quite dangerous – is now Bicentennial Park, where people ride bikes on the runway and enjoy a wide variety of activities on the grounds.

Here are some snaps from my visit earlier this week:
