The Rodini Park in Rhodes Greece

The Rodini Park has the unique distinction of being the world’s first landscaped park. This park was very popular with the Romans and they even built an aqueduct here. The Knights of Rhodes once grew their medicinal herbs in Rodini Park. Inside the park’s premises, there are peacocks galore that are residents of the park. There is a well-defined walkway that extends all the way to the stream. A walk of about 10 minutes will bring you to a tomb carved into the rock. The tomb, dating from the Hellenist period and featuring a decoration of 21 Doric half-pillars - is known as the tomb of the Ptolemies.
