Botanical Park & Gardens Of Crete, Fournes

4.6
#7 of 36 in Parks in Chania Prefecture
Garden Nature / Park
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. Botanical Park & Gardens Of Crete is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our online itinerary creator, Fournes Edition.

  • The trail is about 2.5 km long (from the Hill down and back up) is divided into different areas (E.g. fruits, herbs, grapes) and nice + informative created. The trees/shrubs have a descriptive sign in Greek and English. A meal at the in-house restaurant that cooks with fruits from the Park awaits you at the end. even the children were thrilled.

  • Nice walk in this park very often shaded. Many fruit trees, and a well-marked nice route, which is done in peace. The various trees and plants are well presented and appointed. Beautiful flowers, a small lake in the middle where you can relax while reading a book in french is it you please! Animals who cavort everywhere, in short a bucolic walk at will. Pleasantly can extend to the Park's restaurant where you can eat salads and fruits harvested, local on-site, at very reasonable prices. Besides the road to get there is very nice, what more?

  • A fantastic place with two routes classified in terms of difficulty (probably helpful for exploring Tora is taking good care of). Introduction I think 6 euros. At the start of each will receive a bottle of mineral water. A route longer is not difficult. No significant hills. It goes just a bit longer. Embarrassing but may be getting from the truck. A lot of the shadow, which is very important for long walks in the high temperature. The specimens. Fruit trees, flowers, shrubs. Several benches for rest. Donkeys, the mountain goats, peacocks, turkeys:) Beautiful place!

  • 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.
