Rodini Park Sightseeing Guide

Rodini park was landscaped and created by the local populace before roman times, and with the Roman occupation of the island, they loved it so much they spent a lot of time and effort looking after the park and built aqueducts and other buildings, some of which can still be seen today.

The park is a green and pleasant place, with a large stream running through it, crossed by a small bridge.  Within the park nature and especially peacocks flourish and breed naturally.

When in the park you can take small rowing boat rides around the park following the course of the slow flowing stream.  Its a popular place to come for both visitors and locals alike and is very refreshing in the heat of summer.

If you are a nature lover you will be in your element, with a wide range of nature including birds, insects and lizards that live here, the flora and fauna is absolutely amazing and makes for some interesting photographs.

Rodini Park - General Information

The park is easily accessible by car, or by catching the local bus and sits just 3km outside of the capital Rhodes Town.  You will find it quite busy in the summer months but its well worth a visit, even for a few hours.

Within the park you can pick up some light refreshments walk by the stream under cooling Cypress and Pine trees and even venture into the small local zoo which has been built over the past few years.

For the more athletic and adventurous, take a walk to the the tomb of Ptolemies.  The tomb is just a short 10 minute walk and has been dug into the rock centuries ago.  The tomb dates back to the Hellenistic period and it is distinctly Doric in terms of architecture.  A cemetery known as the city of the dead was also built in the park during the 3
rd century and even now you can still see the tombstones and carved figures that are several centuries old.

Some of the nature you can see in the park as covered above is turtles, terrapins, ducks and swans all carrying on with their business feeding and nest building.  The park is an Oasis in this parched landscape and well worth visiting to see the amazing aqueduct and lush scenery.
