Antonis Tritsis Wetlands Area, imagine that, a bird sanctuary and wetlands park in the western suburbs of Athens. This sprawling protected land that once was a weekend escape of the Queen has several lakes, great birdwatching and the former royal properties have been turned into a community art gallery, cafe and an organic market.

Wetlands in Greece
The park has playgrounds for the kids and walking, jogging and biking paths for everyone to enjoy. There is even a reptile house for those interested in snakes (this has a fee, the rest of the area is open to the public and is free.)
