Exploring and relaxing in beautiful parks, groves and gardens is one of the top things to do in Attica! Green oases for memorable walks, cycling, jogging, sports and recreation, picnics and relaxation; sit under pines and cypresses and have a coffee, listening to the birds singing, or watch a performance at an open-air theatre, under the starry sky.

Green spaces of stunning beauty are to be found everywhere in Athens, downtown and around Greece’s capital city, in its incredible suburbs. It will come as a surprise, that in the buzzing urban sprawl with the vibrant pulse there are parks, groves and gardens with hundreds different types of plants and trees, animals and birds, as well as ponds and streams with wooden bridges, open-air theatres and cinemas, cafes, playgrounds, playing fields, paths and fountains.
