Nature / Park
Stroll through Viharamahadevi Park, the oldest and largest park in Colombo. Lush and well-maintained plant life, such as tall trees and colorful flowers, surround the pathways and benches. Walk over the lake's suspension bridge and visit the war memorial, paying tribute to Sri Lankan and European soldiers who died in both world wars. Kids love the extensive play area featuring a massive playhouse, swings, slides, and mini hills. Pick up some cotton candy as you walk over to the small but rewarding aquarium.

Where to stay in Colombo

Despite its relatively low cost of living, Colombo accommodations tend to be fairly pricey. Close to the sea and the lake, as well as near the city's parks and the plazas, hotels come in the form of old colonial buildings and ultra-modern high rises, with a decent selection of each to choose from. Budget-conscious travelers should pay attention to the short rental options in the town's more residential areas, or look for the smattering of simple, but serviceable options close to the main train stations, and on the side streets set back from the waterfront.

  • A well structured urban park situated in the heart of Colombo. Also it's a great option to have a good jog in the evenings after work and on weekend mornings. There are garden fitness equipment too. It's mostly populated by youngsters hanging out with their friends and partners.
  • Good place to hang out with your friends and loved ones. Well nothing too extraordinary. Just good place to chill out and spend some free time to relax.
  • Great park for all ages. Good stop and sit to have lunch or a snack on a beautiful sunny day. This park has lots of tourists from all walks of life, every where in the world. Great park for photos and videos. Overall awesome park for everyone
  • Very good place hangout with you girlfriend/boyfriend! Lunch available. Snacks available. No fooling around cause police people are there all the time.
  • Very nice place. It is good for relaxing. You can enjoy with your family from there
