Still the Greenest place in Colombo. but full of traffic & noisy. The pavements have beautiful paintings , which are reasonably priced & very artistic, ideal to take abroad or for foreign tourists as souvenirs. Well worth a visit.

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.

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
