Attica Zoological Park is a private zoo located on the outskirts of Athens and covers an area of 20 hectares. It was opened in May 2000. It immediately gained immense popularity among young visitors and their parents.
At first, it was created as a Bird Park. At that time, the collection of birds living in the park was considered the third-largest in the world and consisted of more than 1,000 individuals of 300 different species.
In April 2001, a new section “The World of Reptiles” was opened, where one could already see crocodiles, pythons, boas, and other reptiles. And in July 2002, the section “Greek fauna” appeared with brown bears, foxes, wild cats, lynxes, wolves, etc. In February 2003, the African Savannah was added with giraffes, zebras, and antelopes. Jaguars, llamas, snow leopards, white lions, and other mammals also appeared.
At the end of June 2003, monkeys appeared at the zoo. Since then, the zoo has added many other interesting and rare animals. In 2010, a dolphinarium was opened at the zoo, where you can not only admire dolphins and sea lions but also watch shows with their participation. Some species of animals and birds living in Attica are listed in the Red Book.
The park has a picnic area, a cozy cafe, and a children’s playground, as well as a souvenir shop. Professional guides will conduct an exciting tour for children and adults.
Especially for children, interactive programs have been developed to inform about the importance of preserving the natural habitat of each species and caring for nature in general. A special pride of the zoo is the significant number of animals listed in the Red Book.
The Attica Zoological Park is considered one of the most visited in the world and is open to visitors all year round. It is a member of the European Association of Zoos and Aquariums. A visit to this natural reserve is a great way to please yourself and your kids with an exciting walk in the fresh air and acquaintance with exotic animals collected from different parts of the world.

Allou Territory! FunPark is divided into two large zones, which provide entertainment for different ages.
In the northwestern part of the park, there is a real paradise for the little ones – a separate Kidom zone, offering a lot of entertainment, swings, carousels, and slides for children aged 3 to 12 years.
