The Park has the concept of a rich biodiversity ecosystem of Crete. The visitors are guided though the rich wild vegetation of the park with the plants of Cretan traditional cookery, the aromatic medical herbs, the beautiful wild flowers from Crete and a lot of animals that live in this ecosystem. Crete with 10% endemic species gave a reasonable target to create this non profit park, to show the exotic flora and fauna of our island.
