“a walk in the park ...”
Reviewed June 20, 2014

It is simply unbelievable to reckon this lake as a man made lake. At the heart of the city; where you can spend your time taking a long walk, jet ski (water scooters) or hop onto the boat for a ride of the entire lake.

The park has a parking as well as an entrance fee which is very minimal. The community is doing a lot to keep the park clean and entertaining.

Spend some time here in the later hours of the afternoon. You will certainly enjoy it.

Awesome that the community is doing so much to improve this area, but I feel it still has some way to go.

“Did you know it was man made?”
Reviewed June 15, 2014

Just 5 min on the Badulla road passing the race course you will come to the point where the lake is active at its best. Row boats, Jet skies, Boating, Swan boats, and even a jogging path is developed for the publics. The domestic air taxi lands and takes off at the lake, and you could drive around the lake and view the beauty of Nuwara Eliya from either side. Great for picnics and just stroll in the evenings. Fishing is not allowed and you should not try bathing as it is illegal and not advised as it is very muddy and some places quote deep.

“Akram Noorani - Karachi Pakistan”
Reviewed June 12, 2014 via mobile

A lovely serene lake in the heart of Nuwara Eliya.

You can walk around it, sit besides it or take a boat ride.

It's so beautiful, one can spend a whole day sitting there.

“Keep on walking!”
Reviewed June 8, 2014

We spent a day exploring Nuwara Eliya on foot, and followed directions to a 'lake just up the road'. It's a bit of a hike in the heat, and we didn't really think much of it: a small lake, just behind some allotments, with lots of litter and a couple of cows sauntering down the footpath.
We realised retrospectively that we hadn't gone far enough, and the 'resort' aspect of Lake Gregory starts a bit further on with boats to hire etc.
