Platres and Troodos or between creaks and giggles

Hello everybody,

Two places, three playgrounds in the chilly Trodoos Mountains are in Platers Village one of the most beautiful locations in Trodoos and Troodos Village one of the highest places in Cyprus (1752 m).

Platers is the special treasure of Troodos Mountains, the biggest mountain resort in Cyprus with lots beautiful old houses, shaded streets, nice restaurants and hotels. This is the place where you can find the best Cypriot apple pie and fresh trout. The best place, where you can get chilly in the summer or see the snow in the winter.
In the small city of Platres you can enjoy two lovely playgrounds, Sparti Adventure Rope Park and also the beautiful Millomeri waterfall.

In the center of the city you will be able to let the children have fun in the fresh air in the newest updated playground in Platres. It is very nice for all kids exactly in the center of the village opposite the Police Station. There are three slides, swings for babies and older children, 2 seesaws, a roundabout, and other swinging toys. The entire playground is covered by artificial grass and rubber tiles, and is surrounded by fence. The playground is under very tall trees assuring a complete shadow in the hot summer days. 

The second playground is smaller, situated on the first street up on your right from the Police Station for about 300 m. This playground has slides, swings, seesaws.

The village is also the starting point to the beautiful Millomeri waterfall and the place where you can eat the best fresh trout and it became now the first attraction for the kids who enjoy the newest attraction the Adventure Park Sparti.

Next experience is Troodos village, the highest village in the mountains, the starting point for many walking and bicycle trails.
It is mainly a tourist village where you can buy lots of souvenirs and also enjoy horse riding. This is a very beautiful location also in the winter time, being the place where you can find lots of snow and try some winter activities like skiing or sliding.

You could rent bikes from the Hotel Troodos situated in the center of the village. The playground is very big with swings, slides, seesaws and climbing frames and it is opposite the main restaurants of the village. 

Take your time and enjoy the creaks of the swings and the laughs of your kids. 
Remember that time in your childhood, the feeling of happiness when you were the age of your children, going in the swing and looking at the sky with the air blowing through the hair. Higher and higher!!! Words will live forever on the same old swings… only us, we will be different… passenger…travelers trough the beautiful island of Cyprus!

Lots of sunny days from Izzy the Cypriot Lizard!
