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.

Had a wonderful tour of the nature reserve, seeing the different animals and being educated on the flora and fauna of Crete. Our little one (3) really enjoyed it, especially the rabbits and tortoise!

The walk to the park was nice, going uphill. Park itself is small, but people (volunteers) are doing great work - they tell a lot about plants and animals. That was quite interesting excursion. Our small child was happy to feed bunnies and chickens.

It's not a very big deal. Just a small park, but it seems like you're visiting friends that work here because they love it and beacuse they care for it. We loved the visit.
