Galle Face Green, Colombo

3.6
#1 of 6 in Parks in Colombo
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.

  • Good weather and nice view. The waves are very strong so nobody can swim here. It's very dangerous for kids because it's high and no fences near the beach. There is some small restaurants and food tables but i didn't find a coffee shop.
  • Good place to spend free time. Very best at evening. there have small ground can be playing. There have small shops you can bring food and small gadgets you can buy love ones...
  • Nice place to enjoy your evening. But sometimes it may crowded. Have parking spaces and you have to take a parking ticket from a ticket machine. This place sells Kites and other toys. Small huts have isso wade and other street foods.
  • Good Place to enjoy your evening. Try Isso Wade. Crowded on Sundays and Public Holidays. If you wanna sit on the grass, please bring a sheet or something to sit on. Playing possible for small groups. Best place for Sunset
  • I always love the place. But lots changes done but need more improvements in order comply with modern day standards.
