“Lovely park, but not much of a botanical garden”

Botanical Garden Diomedes
Ranked #1 of 2 things to do in Chaidari
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 5 June 2014

It is a lovely park to go jogging/walking or to take your kids to, definitely, with abundance of shade.
As a botanical garden for which we drove 30 km, it was rather disappointing. There are many more interesting blossoming flowers in the streets than in the garden... I was expecting a lot more based on the reviews and previous visits of other botanical gardens.

I'm not much for gardens normally, but this was quite impressive, with a nice selection of flowers and trees. It's a perfect place for a picnic, stroll, or jog. I thought there would be an entrance fee, but it was free. No pets allowed, so leave Rover at home. The restrooms are so-so, but functional, with running water. There's a nice little playground for children. Strollers are permitted. Kids under 14 need to be escorted by a parent. There are also vending machines, with food and soda. Some benches and picnic tables are also available. Across the street from the gardens are a couple nice tennis courts. Unfortunately, the operating hours are very limited (8AM to 2 PM weekdays; weekends 10AM to 3 PM). The web site is in Greek, but if you open it in Google Chrome, it will translate to English. http://www.diomedes-bg.uoa.gr/
