For a famous park situated in a salubrious hill station, 'Victoria Park' doesn't quite measure up too well.
It is pretty large in size - all of 27 acres. 90% of the trees here are said to be the "imported" variety - possibly from England - after which Nuwara Eliya is named (meaning 'Little England' in Sinhalese). The trees are all very huge and must be quite old too ! 1897 is considered to be the year in which the park was named to commemorate the 60th Jubilee Coronation of Queen Victoria
The various flower gardens in the park are also pretty wide in range. There's a separate section for Roses, Gladiolas, and many other varieties.
Didn't spot any of those rare species of birds though !!
The park is worth a visit, particularly if you're on your first visit to Nuwara Eliya !
