The ideal place to cool down on a hot summer's day is the National Garden (Εθνικός Κήπος) next to the parliament building, created in 1839. The entrance at Amalias Avenue features a sun dial and a row of huge century-old palm trees. A small botanical museum featuring an interesting selection of plants and seeds can be found in the park as well as a library for children, a playground, a cafe, and a duck pond. Bird-watchers will notice the numerous species populating the lush vegetation. Right next to the National Garden is a park surrounding the majestic Zappion Hall which dates back to 1888. This is the preferred place of many Athenians for a leisurely stroll in the evening. Basketball and volleyball courts can be found in the direction of Vassileos Konstantinou Avenue.
The National Gardens are a wonderful place to visit, and unwind after a hectic day visiting the Acropolis and Parthenon. We had spent the previous night sleeping at the Athens airport (very uncomfortable), and this was a wonderful place to recharge our battery. Also scattered across the landscape are pieces from ancient Athens. Look around and you will find the pieces. The National Garden doesn't cost any money, so you can save money.
We also visited the zoo in the National Garden. The zoo was comical. There weren't very many animals.
