So pretty and relaxing.

This park was close to our hotel and it was a wonderful walk through the park to end each day. It's very pretty and calm. It almost reminds me of Central Park in NYC.

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.

To get here, you can get the Metro to the Agia Marina station (end of the Blue Line) and then take a local bus to Diomedios and then walk back the way the bus came a little until you see the main entrance at 403 Iera Odos (there are several smaller entrances that are locked tight). 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
