Victoria Park is supposed to be a botanical garden but it needs a lot of work on it. Some parts of the park are great, such as the rose gardens, but there's lots of rubbish elsewhere in the park, especially close to the river. Considering that one has to pay to get into the gardens, I would expect the place to at least be cleaned up. That could apply to the town of Nuwara Eliya as well.

The Victoria park is good to spend some time leisurely but there is not much things to see and do other than the beautiful flowers.

Possibly too early in the year so not much flowering but it is very well maintained and a pleasant stroll up to town.

Birds in some numbers but you need to go early, take the bins because the trees are high and distances quite long.

From my hotel (The Grand) an easy walk and worth doing just the once.

Beautifully kept. Locals picnicking. Wonderful trees, all labeled. A splendid walk through history. Well worth the special 'foreigners' entry fee rate.

Its just another park. Money they charge from Non Lankans is not worth the visit. But if you are staying for a longer time in NE then, please visit to spend time.
