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

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

A usual busy street in Colombo, but it's an art oasis, where individual painters display and sell some amazing paintings, adjoins viharamahadevi park

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.
