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.

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.

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.

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.
