Viharamahadevi Park, Colombo
(4.3/5 based on 400+ reviews on the web)
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. Use our Colombo vacation planner to add Viharamahadevi Park and other attractions to your Colombo vacation plans.

  • This park is also known as Victoria Park and is a nice spot to get away from the hustle-bustle of the traffic. There is a large playground area for children and plenty of paths to walk around the park...  more »

  • A great spot in the early morning – come for laps around the park or yoga/whatever you like in one of the pagodas. There are always people doing their morning exercise, if you keep coming back you'll soon recognize many faces. In the afternoon families are picnicking, kids biking and lots of couples in love occupy the benches and half-hidden spots under the trees.
  • The best place in Colombo, greeny place and natural. It's in the town. Must visit and enjoy. #akiy
  • Lovely park in the middle of a busy town Best place to relax yourself
  • Very big park but not so nice,many people sit around here. Big trees. Not so good maintained. Maybe because Sri Lanka anywhere is green.
  • Shady green jungle in heart of colombo. relaxing and cool atmosphere. weekend s too crowded nice walkway available.
