  • Visited on a weekend with couple of families. Not like other botanical gardens in Sri Lanka, there are no full of flowers and still you can enjoy the nature. Lots of rare plants and trees all the way up to the top. Around the botanical garden walking is bit tired, but make to feel the nature. Or you can lay down somewhere and relax. You have enough parking at the entrance. Only at the entrance you can find a shelter, along with a small cafeteria. You have limited options of food and beverages. You can go for boat rides the artificial lake, for photography.
  • Traveling from Colombo would take approximately one and half hours to two hours, and may differ depending on the level of traffic and the day you travel. Drive to the location would be a partly a comfortable drive, where the roads and perfect with carpeted roads, the last bit of the road leading to the park is a bit of bumpy ride. However, does compensate with the view of the surrounding. The best would be the walk that you could do up a hill, getting the chance to see many varieties of trees, and many species of birds. If interested in seeing birds, then i would advice anyone to visit the place at a time where there a less people in the park like a weekday, and early as possible. This is a ideal place for the photo shoot. Many couples came here for pre-shoot. The park provides the transport for reasonable fee. But I feel walking is the best option then you will not miss the nice seen.
  • Having the chance of walking through giant trees and walking up the hill to reach the watch tower was an great experience. Once you stand in the watch tower you are greeted with a great view across the landscape. The lower part of the garden is maintained like any other botanical garden with properly planted flower patches, and well maintained patch of grass surrounding a small lake. Where you can find many pose for photographs, including some who have come for the pre-wedding photo shoots. As this was my first time visiting the garden, I was not aware of what to expect. Once visiting what i enjoyed the most was the tall trees, the shade and the animals that could be seen. If you do enjoy nature, then I would recommend visiting early in the morning. At least the place do open by 07:30 am.
  • Don't let the views disguise you! This park is still hot and sweaty like the typical Colombo weather. It's clean but there isn't​ any place for you to sit under a shade comfortably and enjoy a meal. Would have been much better if they had some picnic tables around.
  • Serene environment. Great place to relax and have a picnic with the family. But keep in mind to take an umbrella! Rains there are unpredictable. The last 4 km of the access road is a boneshaker! Better if renovated. Foreign visitor tickets are way too expensive as there is little to see...
