Sports facilities, playgrounds, an outdoors cinema, many trees of all kinds, gazebos with tables in them, and even a cave make up an enjoyable scenery.

Being the favourite oasis of the residents of the northern suburbs of the city, the green-clad and flower-scented estate “hides” treasures to be discovered: the unique in Greece neo-gothic Orthodox Church of St Andrew and the mansion of the Syngrou family, designed by Ernst Moritz Theodor Ziller.

Picnic back as trend 

Travelerf the world. Picnic in big capitals' parks is the new trend . This is London lifestyle blogger Emma Louise Layla on a Regents Park picnic ... with so much style ...

This photo were taken back in sunny September with my bestie, a picnic hamper, blanket and bottle of champagne. Perfect Sunday afternoon! We had a classic tartan picnic blanket just like this when I was a kid, kept in the car boot for when inspiration struck. This one is from Wool Blanket Online, made in Britain in a soft, pure wool Royal Stewart tartan (the Queen's tartan, dontcha know) and tied up with a handy carry strap. I'm wearing this black lace dress, my Jigsaw straw panama hat and probably the last SPF of the year. Now onto traditional autumn rituals..."
