In Agios Artemios, in a densely populated neighborhood of Athens, also known as Gouva, the 7th pocket park of the city was "born". With this park, the network of innovative bioclimatic green spaces is expanded, which aim to upgrade the quality of life in the neighborhoods, to offer vital space to the residents and to give "breath" to former abandoned areas.

In order to have completed the first ten pocket parks by the end of the year, the new intervention on Leagrou Street, comes to confirm the intensive effort of the municipal authority to "green" the neighborhoods of Athens, making them open and accessible to residents and visitors .

The image of "before" and "after" both inside the park and around it, shows the size of the intervention in this Athenian neighborhood: Two new large trees were added to the existing ones, while a total of 250 perennials, blooming most months of the year, helped to upgrade the aesthetic image. Throughout the park, plants were used with intense flowering that were placed on bordered hills, while at the back of the park a green "back" of sugarcane was created, hiding the concrete wall.

Around the park, two rows of tall evergreen shrubs were planted: the outer one with oleanders and the inner one with angelic ones. All the walls were painted around the perimeter, while the lighting was enhanced with photovoltaic panels for the greatest possible safety of the visitors as well as for the energy autonomy of the park. In addition, the irrigation system was completely renovated, as was the urban equipment so that visitors could interact in a green, shady and safe space.
