Parque Jipiro - City Plaza Loja - Ecuador

One of the best known parks in Loja, Jipiro is north of the city and spans 10 hectares (25 ac). There is a lake, sports fields, a "cyber train" with Internet service, a zoo and pools, as well as many replicas of the world’s great buildings. It is a great place to take a stroll. On the weekends it fills up with Lojano families who come for the many activities and events. One of the buildings houses a planetarium, with shows playing continually (whenever the seats fill up) and lasting about 15 minutes. Masochists will enjoy an interesting ride where a guy straps you into a gyroscope-looking thing and give you a hearty spin. The paddle boats are also fun for a couple of bucks.
