The Mt. Lykaion Excavation and Survey Project has proposed the creation of a heritage area in the Western Peloponnesos of approximately 550 square kilometers.

The idea of the heritage park would be to unify and protect a large number of ancient cities and sanctuaries that are located in Western Arcadia, Southern Elis and Northern Messenia and to create a series of paths and trails that would connect these areas so that modern visitors could easily visit them on foot. In addition a visitor’s center would be created and information would be available regarding the fauna, flora, geology, history, as well as archaeology of the area. In antiquity much of the area was known as the Parrhasia, which is itself a Homeric place name.
