Walked first time with Elle Scales at 24 October 2014.
I like this park, a few old trees have a name and a story. The one in the picture calls Athena. And the stgory is : Once in Ancient Greece when the first king of Athens, Cecrops, who is half human and snake, had to find someone to representative of the new city. There are two of Olympian Gods, who were interested to be the representative were Poseidon, the god of sea, and Athena, the god of wisdom. They presented themselves in front of King Cercrops but the city can have just only one representative. So King Cecrops decided to let Poseidon and Athena compete, he asked them to offer the city a gift, which gift is more valuable to the city that gods will be selected as the representative. Poseidon was the first to go, he struck his powerful trident into the Earth and immediately the water flew into the area and create a little pond., Unfortunately, the water in the pond tend to be salty so it is not very useful for the population. When it was Athena turn, she stepped forward and kneeled to plant an olive branch on the ground and suddenly with the power of goddess, the olive tree grown high as a symbol of peaceful. Her gift was impressive by people and the king because an olive tree is very useful; its trunk can be use as a fire wood and also can use to build a house; its produce oil that people can use to cook their food; and its tree can be a shadow for people. So Athena was chosen to be the representative of the city and since then it calls Athens. * We should tell to repair this bridge. In the winter it will be dangerous to use it.
