The park is free to enter and the main entrance is opposite the new parliament building. Here you will find the big golden Buddha statue surrounded by palms and trees. The setting is peaceful and pleasant. Walking through the park is made easy with numerous pathways to follow. Towards the back of the park is an outdoor workout space and a few horses which can be photographed. There are no restroom or restaurant facilities available, so plan accordingly!

Viharamahadevi Park is a public park located in Cinnamon Gardens, Colombo, situated in front of the colonial-era Town Hall in Sri Lanka. It was built by the British colonial administration and is the oldest and largest park of Colombo. The park was originally named "Victoria Park" after Queen Victoria but was renamed after Queen Viharamahadevi, the mother of King Dutugamunu on July 18, 1958.

We took a walk through the park on a hot humid day, and had a drink at the restaurant in the centre of the park. There is a play area for kids, exercise equipment, and a dedicated bike lane.

Centrally located this park is suitable for stroll in morning or evening. Walking tracks and benches for resting are available in the park. The entry is adorned by a golden statue of Lord Buddha.

Nothing unique, you may decide to visit this park if visiting any nearby area.

Lot of open space, can spend good time specially in the evenings. I was told by the security that there was a cinnamon garden too, but could not visit.

Beautiful park with part of it allocate for children playground (basic, not modern). I enjoy walking at the park in the evening as the view is stunning - especially looking at the town hall opposite of the park.

from 5 am onward the Park wakes up with people coming for their morning jog. Definitely the best place to have your walk in the central city.
Secure, clean, well lit, enough parking and plenty of space to do your own jog in peace

We spent a morning walking around this large city park (formerly Victoria Park) and had a funny experience of meeting a pleasant gentleman, who began talking with us and showing us various plants and trees and telling their stories (he claimed to have once worked there as a gardener). We had a feeling we were being lead into a money making situation, and we ended up giving him a few hundred rupees for his time, which was no problem for us, but might put others off. It’s a nice local vibe and there are fresh juices available in the central pavilion as well as a restroom (serviceable). A relaxing and fine way to spend a couple of hours.
