the botanical park of Crete


In October 2004 there was a great fire that hit this valley. Olive trees and Orange Groves were engulfed in fire, The land was owned by one family and they sat down to consider what to do next.
There are four brothers and one suggested creating a Botanical Park. For the past 5 years the family have worked to create their dream and two weeks ago the park opened to visitors.
They are working to create a park that is managed organically and works with the natural plants of the area.
Some of the burnt out olive trees have been left as natural sculptures throughout the park.
