Τhe post was initially uploaded in my Hive profile earlier. Now i will answer to a few related questions, because this is a contest made by @girolamomarotta. The park is open 24hours, it's free and you can have a picnic there. It has multiple entrances and you can by car or train and bus. Depending on where you live, you can visit it by foot (like me). If you copy/paste the title on google map it will guide you!

To begin with, i like traveling a lot, but who doesn't right? When i was in elementary school my parents took me with them on a trip abroad. The experience was life-changing even at that age and as you can imagine i wanted to go everywhere!

My parents used a pretty clever method in which they asked me to gather money from birthdays, Christmas and stuff in order to pay for it, if i wanted it so much, which i did! Now note that sometimes i couldn't even gather half of the money and still taking me with them, just my parents wanted to teach me a lesson about money, experiences, do what i like!

I have been in a couple of countries since then and i really like to discover new places in my country as well. I believe that we got so many hidden treasures in our countries that for the sake of "traveling abroad" we miss them! So my posts will be both about different countries as well as my own, let's begin!

The Park

Before i start sharing info and photos about the park, let me tell you that i live in Greece, in Athens to be exact and this park is located in the west part of Athens! Greece, as you know, has magnificent places so get ready to be amazed!

The park is considered to be the biggest in Athens with a total size of 1200 acres. To understand better its size, think of it like this. If you have ever been to Athens, you surely visited the National Garden which is only 158 acres long!

In addition to this, the Hydre park on London is almost in the same size with 1420 acres and double that amount is Central Park in New York with 3410 acres. So we are talking about a big big park that you need to visit if you come to Athens!

History of the Park

In Greece, we say that every rock has its history so the park has a few stories to tell. A little after the Greek independence (1821), a Greek rich guy bought about 300 acres of where the park is and sold it to 2 Englishmen who used it as a farm and after a while sold it as well!

in 1848 Amalie von Oldenburg or queen Amalia of Greece liked the place and bought it. They extended to 2500 acres and had multiple trees, animals, and workers. It became a model center for Agriculture and Livestock and the queen even built a mansion there.

They also created an extra artificial hill and named it "Επτάλοφο" which translates to "seven hills". After this a lot of things happen, democracy came to Greece and the park changed many owners.

Fast forward to 1940, Germans took everything, but the park with the many olive trees and such managed to feed many people. After the new owner of the park became the state!

How The Park is Now

Now the park has 6 artificial lakes with many animals such as ducks, fishes and many birds like parrots living there. More than 15.000 people visit it during the weekends and there are many events that take place in the park that have brought over 100k people altogether!

Especially now during the quarantine whenever you go, you will see people running, walking, be with their pets or families and play. The only drawback is that these last couple of years, they need to take extra care of it cause it's like they left it to rot. The potential that this park has is enormous and can make it a rival of the Central Park (i have been in both!)

Hi, thanks for the info. Could you put your Hive post link here in a comment?
Thank you

@filotasriza3 I'm sorry but it's the same post, with the same words and the same images. Unfortunately I can't accept it for the challenge. It would be against the rules.

However, I think your work is not bad, so I invite you to write another post, there is time until tomorrow for being included in the first week of the contest, or you can do it more calmly in the coming days and participate in the second week.

Thank you, see you soon

let me ask you something and i am doing it with respect.

I am the same guy meaning it's both my accounts in Hive and Steemit, so i don't steal content it's 100% original. I created my post via hive and if you check the time a few minutes later i uploaded in steemit too, i could easily do the exact opposite. Ofc it woud be the same images cause that's what i have taken from my phone :P You know how much time it takes to write a post a like that, so i don't understand the logic of "the same post"How the value for example is lost because i uploaded a couple of minutes earlier in hive?

Platforms like this steemit/hive/Publisx0 and so on are a similar and if an author cross post his articles in evey single one of them isn't bad in my opinion, the opposite, it helps the author become more well known.

I also understand that if these are the rules you have set, then it's ok we can't do anything about it, it's your call, i am just stating my opinion as a conent writer and fellow neighbor!

Hello this info is only if you speak/write Greek
