Pedion tou Areos, Athens Overview

The Pedion Tou Areos park is one of the largest public parks in Athens, located just a kilometre northeast of Omonoia Square. It covers an area of 114 acres. There are statues of heroes of the 1821 Greek revolution throughout the park. There is also a memorial for all the martyrs who sacrificed their lives in the Battle of Greece during the Second World War.

The park entrance has been adorned by a welcoming statue of Constantine I since 1938. It is encircled by hundreds of trees and shrubs, complimenting the Mediterranean climate. Travellers can also explore the artificial rock cave, constructed in 1962, in remembrance of cave god Pan. It also houses the upright marble statue of goddess Athena and the Sacred Band Monument, in honour of the soldiers who fought against the Nazis from 1942-to 1945. In addition, the park houses two churches often used for marriage and baptizing, and a small open theatre Aliki, used for local events. It is also one of Athen’s oldest recreation spots for locals. The Green Park cafe located outside is known for local cuisine.
