New park in Ambelokipi, downtown Athens

A new multipurpose park opened in the central Athens neighborhood of Ambelokipi on Saturday.

The park, on Timoleontos Filimonos Street behind the old Panathinaikos soccer stadium, is the first public space to be created by the cooperation of the City of Athens and the nonprofit organization To Parko Mas (Our Park) with the help of private sponsorship, in this case a mobile phone company.

Authorities have plans to create similar spaces in other parts of the city.
