The original 'Green Path' was the road located between the 'Horton Place' roundabout (meeting point of Dr C.W.W. Kannangara Mawatha and Horton Place) and Duplication road (or R.A. De Mel Mawatha as its known today). When I queried the name, a colonial resident in the area said it was known as such as it was just a small pathway covered... More

When coming towards Rajagiriya side, after a busy traffic filled road, Green Path always welcomes you with a calm road to hit on your accelerator to reach towards Colpetty/Town Hall side. Apart from that, the place is good for jogging on a weekend evening, to go seeing arts, and also has access to the Viharamahadevi Park on a side, and... More

Green Path is a nice oasis in busy city of Colombo. As we travel with a child, we appreciate good and modern playground. This place is clean in comparison to the other attractions as there are many cleaner working all the time. New toilets and wash room are just being built in the park. Definitely good experience.

Given the state of traffic in Colombo, and the dysfunctional pavements with holes and loose paving waiting to break your ankle, Green Path should be a joy to use. Unfortunately, although it is well maintained and generally clean, it is still traffic laden, and is only worth visiting when the street is blocked for pedestrians only on the occasion of... More
