The zoo of Athens, or Attica Zoological Park, is a pleasant place to
spend an afternoon, especially if you are traveling with children.
Attica Park is a privately owned zoo, and it is located in the outskirts of
Athens near the Spata airport.
The zoo exhibits a variety of animals and exotic birds, in a pleasant
environment that allows the animals to live in relative comfort. The 55
square kilometers of the zoo allow the visitors to walk through ponds, fields, and
cages.
The zoo was built in 2000 by Jean-Jacques Lesueur, and it belongs to the
European Association of Zoos and Aquariums. As such, it conforms to the
association’s standards for the humane treatment of the animals, and the
education of the visitors.
Each exhibit offers documentation on the animal’s characteristics and other
information for the visitors. The animals on display are representative of species
from around the world and include lions, tigers, wolves, zebras, bears, and
giraffes, among many others.
At the Athens zoo you will find large cage exhibitions with birds of
America, Africa, and Asia among others, and many smaller
exhibition spaces of specific species like parrots, cranes, and
penguins. In all, there are over 2000 birds from 320 species on
display.
Since the zoo is near the airport it may be an excellent place to spend the day if
you are catching a late flight, or if you find your self at the Athens airport between
flights.
