Antoni Tritsi’s Park
Antoni Tritsi’s Park covers a huge area larger than Hyde Park in London or the National Garden in Athens. Apart from the abundant green, the park has six artificial lakes and a canal.
There is a playground near the central café as well as a horse riding centre and a gym. Furthermore, a reptile centre with reptile collections from different parts of the world is situated at the entrance of the park from Spyrou Moustakli Street.
If you are fans of organic products, it is worth visiting “Natura” organic market that is located next to kafeneio (Greek traditional café) “Ypoglikaimies” as well as “Geus’Ilion” tavern. There is also an ecological bookstore. At the centre of the park next to the lakes, you will find “Delight” café that has an open playground and is open from 9:00 to 13:00. The area is ideal for picnics at the benches beneath the cool shade of the trees.
In some areas of the park are wooden sculptures and there are two churches and three outdoor theatres. The lending library within the park specialises in environmental and landscape architecture themes.
At this specific park special emphasis is given to environmental education so that kids can get acquainted with the birds and the nature of the park.
