What I can see

At the foot of Mount Hymettus, on an area of approximately 40 acres and at an altitude of 132m from sea level, we find Kaisariani Park. It has pines, cypresses and even firs, and is a haven for many birds. It is famous for its paved paths, the playground, the interesting alternation of dense greenery and open spaces with grass, but also for the traditional taverns around the park.

What I can't see

It is also called Skopeftiriou (Shooting Ground), because of the old shooting ground, where today the National Resistance monument is located. A redevelopment plan has been approved, which architecturally unites the grove with the central square of Kaissariani and the Assumption of Our Lady church. In addition, the redevelopment includes the construction of an 800-seat open-air theatre the renovation of historic buildings and sports facilities, and the creation of new sports venues.
