Attica - The Attica Zoological Park


A must-see for every visitor is also the Attica Zoological Park which extends to a total area of 20 hectares, hosting more than 2.000 animals from 350 different species.
It opened in May 2000, initially as a Bird Park, hosting the 3rd largest bird collection in the world (1.100 birds from 300 different species), farm animals for the younger visitors and 3 very impressive walk-in aviaries miniatures of the 3 continents in which visitors can walk and admire the relevant bird fauna and flora.
In April 2001, when the World of Reptiles was added to the Attica Zoological Park, constant expansions and additions began including the Greek Fauna section, with animals rarely seen in Greece (summer 2002), the African Savannah with animals from Africa (February 2003), the monkeys and apes section (June 2003), the completion of the Big Cats section and the extension of the African Savannah (December 2004), the Monkey Forest, where visitors can be in the same enclosure with the monkeys (early 2005), the Cheetah Land, where 4 Cheetahs are kept in a large enclosure which visitors can cross through a special corridor, the chimpanzees and gibbons section (March 2008) and finally the Arid Lands section hosting animals such as camels, Somali wild asses, etc. (April 2008).
In addition, in May 2010, 2 white male rhinos were added to the Park’s family and in June 2010, 4 dolphins and 2 California sea lions became members of AZP’s family.
Future plans include the expansion of the facilities with Dinosavropolis, an Evolution Museum with an emphasis on the Age of the Dinosaurs, as well as Okeanopolis, an Aquarium of international stature.
