4.2
#3 of 6 in Parks in Colombo
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.

  • Good place to visit with kids. Ample parking available around the park. Can get very crowded on weekends and holidays. Could be a little clearer. Sometimes visitors tend to litter. Rides are very reasonably priced. Not many options for food and hygiene might be a question when it comes to the street vendors.
  • Very clean and beautiful place. The place is filled with green grass and trees. There is a hanging bridge over a small lake with ducks and geese. There is a separate area for children for outdoor games. Many people visit here and it's usually crowded during weekends.
  • A peaceful place to spend your leisure. A children’s park is valuable to have n the center of the city . Crowded during week ends and holidays. Excellent location for a family day out
  • The great place to visit and breathe some fresh air in a developing city. Plenty of shelters with awesome sceneries. A boat ride, children leisure park , hanging bridge and etc.. things for do
  • A better place to relax your mind. If you have your own bicycle it would be great.Because bicycle over there isn't in good condition
