The EcoFans explore the National Garden

Apr 25, 2015

The EcoFans visited and eco-inspected the National Garden

National Garden 10
"It remains in my memory like no other park I have known. It is the quintessence of a park, the thing one feels sometimes in looking at a canvas or dreaming of a place one would like to be in and never finds.” This is what the American author Henry Miller wrote about his visit to the National Garden of Athens in 1939. The National Garden is a great escape from the hustle and bustle of the big city, and, apart from being surrounded by a number of ancient monuments, is actually a monument in itself. It is found in the center of eight Athenian neighborhoods, which are directly influenced by its majestic presence. 
 
The EcoFans walked around the shaded paths, next to beautiful ponds, and under exotic trees, where they learned the history of the National Garden and eco-inspected Athens’ greatest treasure, a tropical paradise in the heart of the city. The visit to the National Garden was an experiential activity aimed at raising children’s environmental awareness through the use of English.
