“Family spot for locals, nice for a break”
Reviewed December 18, 2013

This was a good place to wander around and see what the locals get up to....pretty normal family life going on, kids playing, people walking their dogs, couples quarreling :). I liked how it was a bit of a breathe of fresh air after the stuffy Britishness of most of the hotels.

“OK for a city park, but gardeners should go to Hakgala Gardens.”
Reviewed December 3, 2013

Lots of lawn and some well planted beds, a small amusement park for children. If you want to stretch your legs, take the dog for a run or let the children romp, this is OK. The entrance and center of the park are fairly well maintained, but the refuse is all swept to the outer perimeter creating a park surrounded by garbage. If you are a garden aficionado, go to Hakgala Gardens instead.

“Good but could be better”
Reviewed November 10, 2013

The park has some lovely flowers and shrubs, but its not so well maintained away from the main entrance. Its well worth a visit though, and dont moan about paying foreigner rates. At LKR300 its still just over £1 and its certainly worth more than that for a visit.

Only marked down due to the poor maintenance in places. Give it a try though.

“A little piece of England in Sri Lanka”
Reviewed November 4, 2013

Cute park in Nuwara Eliya. Nice place for a stroll and bird watching. The stream needs a bit of a clean.
