The A.G. Leventis Botanical Gardens in Troodos National Park was created in 2004. Since then it has continued to expand. The garden currently has over 250 types of plants, and they plan to have more than 500 plants in the near future.
The purpose of the Troodos botanical gardens is promoting conservation and educating the public about Cypriot botanical heritage, focusing on the Troodos native flora. The A.G. Leventis Botanical Gardens aims to be a research, educational and recreational platform while showing the reclamation of an asbestos mine.
It's a well-kept, state of the art location, with a wealth of information for visitors.
In addition to the gardens, the site also features:
- A mine restoration facility
- Electronic resources
- An education center
It's a great place learn about the plants of the Mediterranean region and the world.
