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.

  • Very nice park in heart of Colombo. Beautiful trees all around. We hear of new cultural project Cirque Lanka which will run from december 2017 in nice open air theatre. 
  • We were a while wandering there, and realized that instead of pigeons, as in Spain, there are crows everywhere. Park is like any other, with fountains and gardens, places for picnics and many local and couples sitting banks. The Buddha which is opposite the Town Hall is quite large and beautiful.

  • You can spend a leisurely, Colombo is one of the busiest places is, this park is located in the heart of the city as a place of recreation and relaxation for citizens. There are several horse pull carriages for children and not only be able to see any wild animals such as squirrels and birds. I'm also tired of the travel, there are a lot of big trees, cool off in the shade of a big tree way to spend a nice time.

  • Not like early days, Now the park is well structured. Cycling field, walking pavements. Also horse riding, horse carriages and also new boating service is now available. Fun and relaxing place. Worth a visit with family.
  • Nice place to relax. Separate children's park is available. Cycling track is available round the park. Sanitary facilities are also well maintained. Ideal place to spend your evening.
  • This place is a really nice place to walk around and calm your mind. It's actually a lot better for couples. I'd recommend coming here at like 5 in the evening for a much better experience
  • It has a natural glamour with a historic significance and is surrounded by the city view in the central colombo. It was founded by Queen Victoria and thus refered to as Victoria park also
