A place with lot of beuaty!!!!! You can go there to have a walk around the trees and the nature. Not to far from the center of athens. Also you can drink a coffee or a refreshment in the coffee shop inside the park on good prices!!!

This park has a nice wooden cafe that serves drinks food coffee . Some people drawing others run or hike. There are trees plants from all over the world and if you are lucky some days in the summer you can watch a theatrical pay.

Beautiful garden. However there is a lot of walking involved to get around the gardens and the hop on hop off bus wasn't too close by to the entrance.

It is closed from... More

It is a lovely park to go jogging/walking or to take your kids to, definitely, with abundance of shade. As a botanical garden for which we drove 30 km, it was rather disappointing. There are many more interesting blossoming flowers in the streets than in the garden... I was expecting a lot more based on the reviews and previous visits... More

I'm not much for gardens normally, but this was quite impressive, with a nice selection of flowers and trees. It's a perfect place for a picnic, stroll, or jog. I thought there would be an entrance fee, but it was free. No pets allowed, so leave Rover at home. The restrooms are so-so, but functional, with running water. There's a... More
