Welcome back, and today I want to talk with you about the Rodini Park In Rhodes.
I have been lucky enough to visit this park on many occasions and I have to tell you it is one of the most beautiful and peaceful places I have ever seen.
During my visits there, I have taken many photographs, some of which I have shared with you on the photo gallery below. I hope you like them.
What I like about the park is it is located almost in the middle of Rhodes City. Although just 3 kilometers from the center, walking inside Rodini Park feels like traveling a million kilometers away into tranquility.
You will never comprehend you are almost in the middle of a city.
Like I have said in previous sections of this website, the main road on the island of Rhodes goes all the way around the island. It is the same road, so it is hard to get lost.
As you head north towards Rhodes City from Lindos, you’ll reach a large set of traffic lights and a junction. At this point, you will find Rodini Park in Rhodes City on your left side.
Use the map I have given you above if you need it 🙂 And do not worry, it is very easy to find!
Rodini Park in Rhodes – A Little History
Documented records show that Rodini Park in Rhodes holds a unique status as the first-ever landscaped park, and it is likely one of the oldest parks still in existence.
Even dating back to Roman times, people frequented the park, enjoying its beauty and tranquility.
People believe that a language school, founded here in 330 BC, attracted famous figures like Julius Caesar in years gone by.
The Romans even built the water channel here (an aqueduct)
Also, inside the park there is a large water tower. In the ancient times it is known that this water tower provided water for the whole city of Rhodes. It is not certain when this water tower was constructed though.
At the end of the pathway there is an archaic tomb which is believed to be the tomb of Ptolemies. I will openly admit I do not know the source of this information, or how valid it is, but it is still worth seeing!
Time To Relax
Once inside the park, you will feel completely at ease. Your frame of mind can
instantly be relaxed as this amazing place takes you away from reality.
A beautiful river flows through the park, where turtles and fishes navigate its waters, and lovely wooden walkways cross over it.
The huge pine trees mixed with the wildlife found here make it a real treat to experience. There are ducks on the water, deer and peacocks patrolling the pathways, and there are waterfalls along with some extraordinary views.
It all sounds perfect doesn’t it? Well that is because it is!
Bench seating is available for you to sit and rest your feet. Just sitting there, breathing in the clean air and appreciating life’s quiet moments, surely makes it worthwhile, right? Additionally, there’s a children’s area to keep the little ones occupied and prevent boredom.

Rodini Park in Rhodes – Overall
Rodini Park is well worth seeing for sure, but I want to tell you something that I have noticed when it comes to talking with visitors to the island.
A lot of people miss out on this amazing location. I do not know why to be honest, maybe it is because it lies off a busy road, and people get tired to try to find parking. Maybe they drive past it without even realizing it is there? I have no idea.
Let me tell you though, if you ever manage to visit The Island Of Rhodes, then Rodini Park is a real gem. It is free, so you can come and go as you please. So why not pass by and admire its beauty? Enjoy the Photo gallery here!
Like I say, the entrance to Rodini Park is completely free. You will find it on the Lindos Avenue heading North towards Rhodes. The telephone number (should you need to make any inquiries is (0030) 22410 73077.
