Upon conclusion of the institution of the Athens-Piraeus Supraprefecture, the biggest and most historic park in Athens, the Pedio tou Areos park, has been renovated and restructured under the directions of architect Alexandros Tombazis and offered to the inhabitants of Athens, on Tuesday. It is now comparable to the biggest parks abroad and is open and safe for all citizens.

The park is in no way reminiscent of its past. A total of 1,200 trees have been planted, 50,000 plants, 7,500 bushes and 2,500 rose bushes, while 9,000 square metres of turf and eight stremmas of ground coverage plants have been added.

Moreover, 22,650 square metres of asphalt have been removed from the old paths and earth was placed in its place and, in parallel, 8,800 square metres of marble stones and 3,800 square metres of granite stones have been placed.

Apart from the environmental and visual aspect of the work, it is noteworthy that the temperature in the park in the summer months will be 3-5 degrees less than that of the city, a fact that will literally make it an oasis in the centre of Athens.

"Upon conclusion of the tenure of the Supraprefecture, I am very pleased that a project that is a gem is being delivered to the Athenians. The biggest park in Athens renovated and restructured. We hope that the Athenians will experience it and enjoy it and protect it," said Dina Bei, Athens-Piraeus Supraprefect, during Tuesday's presentation of the park.
