In Karytaina in mountainous Arcadia, in a green environment with plane trees and almond trees, there is an oasis of joy and play, with everything that children and parents need to keep them busy all day: a large playground, animals, ponds, easy supervision, a cafe and a tavern.

The treehouse

The entry is free and you only pay for what you eat and drink.

The toys that will spend the most time are the treehouse and the cable car, there are also swings, see-saws, balance toys and cable cars for very little children.

Parents sit on the wooden tables in the playground so that they can supervise their children easily and in the shade of the trees and umbrellas.

Next to it are the animals in a space shaped like a small zoo which will delight the children. The herd of deer piques their interest as they can be fed and petted. In addition to deer you will also see ostriches, donkeys, pheasants, partridges and turkeys.
