It's one of the best places one could visit in Athens. It is very modern, clean, and contains many many species. There are very big areas for the animals, more than enough, and they feed them the best food,. It is forbidden for visitors to give them any type of food. I think that this park is perfect for anybody who likes animals.
Small enclosures and ignorant fat Greeks throwing food to animals and screaming to them "hey look here stupid, I want to take a picture of you". You can pet wild animals too, like a drugged looking boa constrictor, and pretend you've done something courageous. Generally it's like any other foreign zoo, but smaller and more cramped. You can have a lot of fun if you leave your sensitivities home, and not spare a second thought about the wild animals being kept here. But if you do, you get overwhelmed by sadness. Trained dolphins jumping high, trained eagles resting on their trainers' arm, cheetahs and rhinos being kept together, elephants, lions giraffes, monkeys... the list is long and impressive. Lizards, snakes and crocodiles are kept in extremely cramped spaces. In my opinion the happier animals there are the small American turtles. The kids will have fun, there's free WiFi, cafes and food, big parking space, courteous staff, and a nice shop, it's just the concept of Zoos is wrong in my opinion. Wild animals should stay in the wild, and not petted, touched or imprisoned. You can't make a cage large enough since there's no substitute for freedom.
I was with my lovely wife and we spend a wonderful time together in Attica Zoological Park, was the best Zoo in which one we was till now, and wasn't expensive! All the time when we will have chance to come back in Greece, we want to come and see again this Zoo!!! 😍 😍 From us you have 5 ***** with pleasure
You can easily spend half a day walking around in the zoo, but make sure you don't miss the cafeteria and restaurant in the middle of the park. They offer great food for a low price.
Absolutely will come back here. What a nice and clean place, good for kids. A great place to spend a day 😍
