Eτήσιος προγραμματισμένος καθαρισμός του Καναλιού

Thursday / February 15 / 2018

We would like to inform our visitors that scheduled maintenance work at the Canal and the Stavros Niarchos Park will be taking place throughout March and could affect your visit. More specifically, due to maintentance work on the lawn the Great Lawn will be temporarily closed for the public until 23/03 and the labyrinth from 26/03 till 16/04 respectively.  

On February 18 the annual, the scheduled cleaning process of the Canal begins, in conjuction with the related maintenance processes. Until the completion of this process, events such as kayak and sailing classes will not take place. All of your favorite activities at the Canal will be back in April, and open to all!

The water of the Canal comes form the sea and returns back there in the exact same or even better quality. The water is cleaned throughout the year by two robotic mechanisms, according to the LEED standards that the SNFCC complies to, that forbid strictly the use of any chemical cleaning substances.

On an annual basis the scheduled Canal cleaning process takes place comprising of the following steps: (1) emptying, (2) cleaning and then (3) filling up the Canal. 

Thank you for your patience
