The Ellinikon Experience Park in Athens: Located around 45 minutes away from the city center of Athens, the up-to-date Ellinikon Experience Park replaced the abandoned facilities of the old airport of Athens and now offers a breath of fresh air in the northern suburbs of Athens.
It is one of the biggest urban renewal projects implemented in Athens, as it covers an area of 2,000 square kilometers, and it is designed to become a cultural center a few steps away from the coastline of Athens.
The park has been built with respect to the principles of sustainable development. Within its area, over 900 trees and 80,000 plants have been planted in the nutrient-enriched soil, adding to the guests' relaxation.
The park’s modern facilities offer a wide variety of activities for visitors of every age; Mediterranean gardens, fountains, shops, playgrounds for children and outdoor fitness facilities are currently available and the park.
The park is open 7 days a week, including national holidays, from 09:00 to 23:00. Entrance is free for everyone throughout the year.
