Renovated "Pedio tou Areos" Park Reopens in Athens

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.  The iniative was under the direction of architect Alexandros Tombazis.  It will be open to Athenians 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.  9,000 square metres of turf and eight stremmas of ground coverage plants have been added.
22,650 square metres of asphalt have been removed from the old paths and earth was placed in its place.  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 project, the temperature in the park in the summer months will be 3-5 degrees less than that of the city.  This statistic will literally make it an oasis in the centre of Athens.
