Botanical Park & Gardens Of Crete, Fournes

4.6
#7 of 36 in Parks in Chania Prefecture
Explore the natural world on the isle of Crete at Botanical Park & Gardens Of Crete, where ornamental plants and fruit trees flourish alongside local flora. The dry air and bright sun provide a climate for many varieties of growth, and trails break through the greenery and weave under citrus trees and flowering plants. Events in the open-air amphitheater include concerts, tastings, folk music, and dancing. A small fee grants you access to the oasis of fruit-bearing trees and multi-colored flowers, but you can visit the on-site restaurant without a ticket to the gardens.

    Do for relaxation with the family. Beautiful views of the gardens. The garden gives a natural appearance. Do if you have two to three hours before you.

    Nice plants and a long winding trail on the hillside. Visited the park on a rainy afternoon but there were less people around which was a plus. A 3+ grade as there were some animals and plenty of peacocks. What makes the minus marks is that the parking lot was not for the faint hearted (steep asphalted hillside, have a small car!) The trees were hanging down at times which caused some dodging. Signs themselves were good but placed far from the actual plants. Finally I think the park could be a few Euros cheaper to feel like a bargain. Still not a bad recreation but lacks polishing.

    Fantastic place! Plants, flowers and herbs from all over the world to see, smell and enjoy. The restaurant are serving lokal food made with herbs from the park. A must-visit place on Crete !

    Fantastic garden with great design and diversity. You get relaxation and positive energy. The restaurant is also awesome, with delicious, natural (bio) food.

    Beautiful botanical garden with a great restaurant. Perfect food and service. Have juice from the local fruits. It's addictive :-)

    Really nice way to spend a couple of hours and get a little exercise during your time in Crete. They have a great array of fruit trees and most are well marked.
