The park's area contains several stone structures, like old stables, basins cut into the rock for water collection that date back many centuries and a lot of constructions using stone and wood, in harmony with the natural environment.

Scientific research organisations (e.g. farming schools) are welcome to the Park for every kind of scientific research, for which they may use the Park's premises or the surrounding area throughout the year.

The Askos Park operates throughout the year, except for the days when the weather is not appropriate. There is no time limit for the visitors while the Park is in operation. All visitors are provided with free bottled water.

There are guides to the Park, but also a special guide-book which is available in 25 different languages.

If one of our visitors wishes to watch or even take part in one of the Park's activities, e.g. to help with the ingathering of olives or the milking of a goat, our staff will help and explain the procedures (if possible or applicable).
