We spent the afternoon wandering around here after a hot morning at the Acropolis. There's a lot of shade, a cafe with toilets, and it's free. The playgrounds were closed because of Covid (I assume that's why they were closed, anyway).

The National Garden (formerly the Royal Garden) is a public park of 15.5 hectares (38 acres) in the center of the Greek capital, Athens. It is located between the districts of Kolonaki and Pangrati, directly behind the Greek Parliament building (The Old Palace) and continues to the South to the area where the Zappeion is located, across from the Panathenaiko or Kalimarmaro Olympic Stadium of the 1896 Olympic Games. The Garden also encloses some ancient ruins, tambourines and Corinthian capitals of columns, mosaics, and other features. On the Southeast side are the busts of Ioannis Kapodistrias, the first governor of Greece, and of the Philhellene Jean-Gabriel Eynard. On the South side are the busts of the celebrated Greek poets Dionysios Solomos, author of the Greek National Hymn, and Aristotelis Valaoritis.

We enjoyed a grand stroll along the multitude of pleasant pathways. Lined with flora some of which still leafless it was a delightful afternoon. In the centre is a fine lake with many ducks in residence. Further on is the remarkable Zappion Centre that is highly ornamented with many architectural design features. There is no shortage of cafes and eateries and we had a delicious lunch in the busy one adjacent to the Zappion.

It's a lovely (free!) park to rest your legs if you're feeling tired in the Athens sun. There's a pond with turtles and ducks and a small zoo which might keep some kids occupied for a while. I wouldn't go out of my way to visit it, but it's certainly worth popping into if you're in the neighbourbood.
