The Eleouthkia Park is the first traditional theme and botanical park in Cyprus. The park is located in the village of Anarita next to the Limassol- Paphos highway at the Anarita- Airport exit. The park is about 5 minutes from Paphos and is situated between the Paphos Airport , Petra tou Romiou, the Secret Valley and Aphrodite Hills resorts.
The name Eleouthkia means small olive trees and was chosen due to the fact that Anarita has always had olive fields. The Eleouthkia Park is the only theme park in Cyprus that focuses on the combination of nature and tradition. It has an extent of 20.000 square meters and has about 50.000 plants and 10 types of flowers, in 13 theme gardens.
The botanical part of the park has been designed with detail so that it is attractive and exciting for visitors. It has all the plants that can be cultivated as well as endemic plants of Cyprus with a name tag with its Latin, English and Greek name. What makes the park special is that it does not only present the botanical information about each plant. With the help of fully trained professionals, tours are provided in the park in which each plant’s story is explained, as well as giving a description about its traditional, gastronomical, medical and therapeutic use.
In this wonderful natural environment, visitors can admire the traditional buildings that have been harmonically combined with the natural beauty. Guests can visit the traditional house, the museum, the exhibitions and the real life displays of traditional occupations, such as the creation of pots, candles, baskets and other traditional crafts.
In the surrounding area of the park , visitors can find the traditional house / farm house , the stable , the traditional ovens , the olive mill , the wind mill , the mills for grating the wheat and the flour , the grape press , as well as the cauldron for extracting the traditional zivania.
The visitors can also sit in the park tavern and enjoy homemade food and dishes that include some of the most delicious sweets. On particular nights, traditional Cypriot nights are organised, where visitors can dance and enjoy themselves.
