Galle Face Green, Colombo

(1,100+ reviews on the web)
Nature / Park
Get the city on one side and the sea on the other at Galle Face Green, the city's green lung. The largest open space in the urban area, it sits between the busy financial district and the ocean. Once used as an official sports area, with horse racing, a golf course, and rugby and cricket pitches, the park now serves as a blank canvas for locals and tourists to indulge in their favorite activities, surrounded by extensive views of the ocean. For Galle Face Green and beyond, use our Colombo itinerary maker to get the most from your Colombo vacation.
