The Athenian eco-park was supposed to be ready for the Olympic Games five years ago. The most important thing is that the company “Olympic Properties” came back to live and the project will probably be realized, even with a “bit” of delay.

Few days ago the company announced the beginning of a public debate and the subject of it is the construction of an eco-park, which will have an area of 2600 Ares next to the Athenian coastal line. Until July 5th 2009, anyone who is interested can visit and give and opinion or suggestion about the eco-park.

“We are starting a dialogue among the citizens, because our goal is to build the park all together,” stress representatives of Olympic Properties. The final project for the eco-park will be announced on July 15th as well as the duration of the project execution.

For now, based on the plan of the company, this will be a typical Mediterranean eco-park with characteristic plants from the flora of the region, planted around a small river, which will create a small pond and then flow into the sea. Planned is also the construction of a summer cinema with 200 seats, nine soccer fields 5x5, three basketball fields and an adventure park. There will also be a water park, outdoor bodybuilding facilities, swimming pool with sand around it, a playground, 2 ponds, botanical garden and a greenhouse, and a canal for canoe kayak.  

The eco-park will be situated in the region of Moshato neighborhood, which is close and easily accessible from the center of Athens. There is a convenient bus and tram connection to Moshato and there is also a nearby outdoor metro stop.
