The southern suburbs, but also the wider area of Athens acquired an impressive park. Experience Park is located in Elliniko, is a green entertainment area of 70 acres, about half the National Garden and opened its doors to the public on December 20.
In essence, it is part of the Metropolitan Park, the result of the largest urban regeneration in Europe, taking place at the old airport of the capital. In fact, when the project is completed, it will be one of the largest in the world.
Lamda Development decided to hand over the specific area to the residents of Athens earlier than planned and only 6 months after the signing of the respective contract in Elliniko. 500 trees and 55,000 plants of Mediterranean varieties were planted in the park, after the biodiversity of the area was explored.
An interesting element about the Experience Park that also makes it different from the rest is that it was designed and built according to the principles of sustainable development. This important move marks a new, more environmentally friendly approach. Among the green goals that are being implemented are the collection of rainwater for water supply needs and the minimization of the use of pesticides and fertilizers to the utilization of existing materials for the creation of architectural elements, such as benches and paths.
In the park, visitors will see a unique fountain, which consists of hundreds of water jets, which are synchronized in “choreography”. In addition, the park includes an outdoor sports area, a playground with a variety of toys, made in an environmentally friendly way as well as the Zen garden which is an oasis where the element of water and Mediterranean nature dominate.
At the same time, work will continue on the completion of the Metropolitan Park, which will be the largest seaside in the world and a valuable green lung that will enhance that of the mountain range of Hymettus.
Holidays at the Experience Park
Especially for the festive season and specifically until January 9, the park will be decorated for Christmas, something that gives it an extra glow. The park is dominated by an imposing Christmas tree at a height of 17 meters with bright lights, which consists of 180 real trees which will be given for reforestation after the end of the festive season. Around the Christmas tree, guests can enjoy flavors from Akis Petretzikis, Elias Skoulas, LUKUMADES, OPSOPHY as well as ethnic suggestions from Esteban and Falafeladiko, combined with many other surprises.
In addition, for the first time in Greece, two unique light installations create a unique experiential experience. The Stalactite, an imposing installation with highly luminous motifs synchronized with music, signed by Christopher Bauder and Boris Divider and Helios, an impressive lighting fixture designed by the Algorithm team to create a landscape full of light, movement and rhythm.
During the holidays (from December 20, 2021 to January 9, 2022) the opening hours are as follows:
– Everyday, weekends and holidays: 17:00 – 22:00
Experience Park is easily accessible, with entrance from Vouliagmeni Avenue, very close to Elliniko Metro station. For the convenience of guests, free parking is provided in the Park. For the safety of visitors, the relevant procedures and recommendations adopted by the competent health authorities are followed.
