We spent a few days in Nuwara Eliya and went to Victoria Park every day during our stay. Our children loved the kids park, as did we. Everyone so lovely, park very clean and so beautiful.

We loved it. May be it is the month of May. When we visited Victoria I was expecting the same bushes and flowers that abound in Nuwara Eliya and a little show here and there.

Nice garden and well kept. However you need to look beyond the litter, because like in many developing countries, it's everywhere.

The park is planted with many exotic trees and beautiful flower beds. And it is good to see it being enjoyed by local families and school groups

This place is perfect for a family picnic. It has ponds and walk ways. children s park is added to the park so that little ones can have a good time. If you are interested in Ornithology (Bird watching) this is a place to see indian pitta, one of the rare migrant bird in sri lanka. a beautiful one.

Nice park at the center of the town. Not very large. If you are travelling with children you should visit as kids would really enjoy the children park. Unfortunately children park is not well maintained. There are broken things. But still worth a visit.

It's a nice big park.. Decently maintained.. Has a play area for kids... Toy train, Ferris wheel... Nice to just sit around and we enjoy the greenery... But then again.. Not worth driving to just to see the park..if u around the place.. Its fine to drop in..else u not missing much
