“Another Place A Traveler Should Not Miss In Nuwara Eliy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2014

Surprisingly Nuwaraeliya offers you 2 Botanical gardens & a golf course in close proximity to each other so one must arrange the journey accordingly to avoid monotony & fatigue as to explore two of them in a single day would be useless & tiring.
Garden is full of flowering & non Flowering trees & bushes, & really attractive.
Best period to visit is during March & May.

“Nothing special”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2014

The fact that this park is rated so highly definitely has more to do with how little there is to see or do in Nureliya than anything the park has to offer. It is really nothing special at all-compared to the botanical gardens in Kandy for example, and not worth visiting unless you are really bored in Nureliya.

“A gentle stroll in the UK”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2014

We walked in the sun from the St Andrews hotel through the town to the park. It was generally clean and tidy with several people either sweeping leaves up or planting shrubs. Formal pools, and gardens, bandstands and summer houses, except for the pond herons and magpie robins, we could have been in any park in the uk. The only downside was the amount of plastic rubbish in the stream, which in truth was only visible because we where chasing birds. Well worth the 300rp charged to foreigners.

An hour is plenty of time and the walk through the town is fascinating and well worth the time in itself. If you like birds then you will spend longer.

“What a Pity”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2014

This should be a lovely cool and quiet place in the centre of town and we enjoyed our amble through it. It wasn't the most flowery time of the year, and some effort was being made to plant up. The nice effect was spoiled for us by the excessive amount of litter scattered around. Worse... in the middle of the park rund a creek which should be an attractive feature - it was littered and dirty and neglected! What pity! With a bit more care and love this could be a special place.
