Antonis Tritsis Park
Antonis Tritsis, the “Environmental Awareness Park”, is located at the western edge of urban Athens, at Ilion. Located at Pyrgos Vassilissis and spanning some 1,200 hectares, this park constitutes the largest green zone in all of Attica.
Water is one of the key themes here. A specially designed system ensures continuous recirculation of fresh water between the park’s six lakes. This abundance of water has helped promote and preserve the park’s rich biodiversity. It has also become something of an incubator of ideas for those in the government who determine environmental policy.
Antonis Tritsis is a gem of simple, natural beauty, a welcome respite from Athens’ booming construction and urbanisation.
