Veikou Grove

In about 20 minutes from the centre of Athens, a lush green space of 63 acres awaits you, ideal for walks and relaxation, family play, exercise and recreation. Veikou Grove in Galatsi district will truly amaze you with the countless possibilities it offers for outdoor activities in a beautiful natural environment.

Grass and trees everywhere, wooden gazebos and benches to rest, beautiful narrow trails and footpaths ideal for walking, hiking and cycling, playgrounds for the little ones, tennis court and football and basketball fields for the… slightly older ones.  Veikou Grove has literally everything!

In the peaceful, well-kept spaces of the grove you will relax in the shade of the trees, have a beverage at the café or enjoy a memorable picnic at one of the gazebos that are scattered in the area. For the… athletic types of visitors, the outdoor gym equipment, the sports fields, the skateboard track, and the indoor and outdoor swimming pools guarantee extraordinary moments of exercise and fun. If you love arts and culture, Veikou Grove has surprises for you, too: at the small open-air theatre that hosts exceptional performances and events during the summer months, and at its open-air cinema you will enjoy unique cultural experiences under the starry sky.

Take a break from the city’s vibrant pulse, in a green space of stunning beauty, that is comfortable and safe for you and your family.
