  • One part of this lake bank is clean because it is maintained by the police and they charge money as a ticket for the maintenance.but the other part of the river is really polluted (there is polythene and plastic everywhere ๐Ÿคฎ) But you can have fun on the place where itโ€™s maintained, there is jet sking , boat rides ๐Ÿšฃโ€โ™€๏ธ, swan rides etc... anyways a good place to enjoy .but I suggest they have to put public dustbins everywhere because the ones which are there is not sufficient and even that is sponsored by a certain company Thank you ๐Ÿ™ƒ
  • One of the lovely place to be if you visited N'Eliya. Walking around lake in the morning and evening is another experience which you should get. Cool breeze, love & panoramic view...
  • Good place to take stroll with amazing lovely scenery. Water sports also available which can be bargained to the lower prices. The place has a ticket of 100 lkr for all foreigners. Car parking is charged extra. The restaurants open up at the Gregory lake too. Few benches to sit and cartoon characters installed there. Closes up at sunset.
  • One of the loveliest place in Nuwara-Eliya.You can take a boat ride and ride a horse if you want but should visit in evening.
  • Wonderful place to visit. You can have a pedal boat ride, motor boat ride or if you brave enough water jet ride. If you board in a hotel that can view gregory lake site it will be fantastic.
