    Probably not the best time to visit but clearly very well kept and popular with locals
    A bit disappointed not to get a map on entry (as entry is expensive for foreigners who probably need and should get a map). But once in you could sense the pride and ownership of the park keepers in preparing this place for the next blooming season. Only wish I could come back to see it. Also sorry to see that the cafe was closed - would have been so nice to sit and admire the park with a drink in hand

    Jan not the best time for this park
    It’s like any other city park. We visited it in Jan, probably not the best month to visit as they were preparing the flower beds, and it was muddy at a few places. Also rainy day is not the best time to visit a park. It is lush green and I am sure Feb or March would be the best season when flowers bloom.

    Nice, well kept, "English" park
    Excellent "English style" park, which is not a shock given the area's past ! Needs a map maybe and few extra seats. I don't object to paying an admission charge, but having different (and much higher) rates for foreigners is totally wrong (and doesn't encourage tourists, who are vital to the ailing Sri Lankan economy).

What an amazing park! Highly recommended our 4 year old loved it . Beuatiful flowers impressive trees and quiet a few wild birds. super clean and great play area for kids well worth the 500 rupees entrance. Happy families and kids running around a park that European cities would envy

A public park that charges 500 lkr per person Thats itself is a joke
On a different note, maintained decent enough and has a good children play area but nothing thats exceptional or something that makes it a must go place when in Nuwara
Skip it is what I would suggest

It’s a great old park with some lovely old trees and plenty of flowers in the spring but not in February. Small museum of photos once inside near the entrance worth a wander

A decent park, with a very nice mesuem which we nearly missed, make sure you pass by it. We were living at the westbury palace which is 5 minutes away we we thought we should pass by it.

A very well maintained garden, so lovely to explore. We spent about 2 hours in there! There are lots of beautiful flowers to look at and photo opportunities. Special thank you to gardener Tony for showing us some flowers we hadn't spotted - very kind man.

Cost 500 rupees to enter per foreign adult. Have to pay to use toilet. Came here to kill time before the train. Had a nice selection of flowers. Greenhouse was locked with succulents inside.
