About Beddagana Wetland Park in Colombo
Located just outside of the city limits of Colombo, Beddagana Wetland Park is a nature park stretching over an area of 18 hectares. This natural expanse of Beddagana lies within the urbanized administrative capital Sri Jayewardenepura Kotte. The new Parliament building is in proximity to this lovely wetland park. It’s a green mosaic of wetlands surrounding the beautiful waterfronts of Diyawanna Lake.
The is home to about 100 plant species, 80 bird species, 20 species of fish, 10 mammal species, and five species of amphibians. Beddagana Wetland Park is located within the Sri Jayewardenepura Kotte Bird Sanctuary and hence, is a popular nesting site for many endemic birds, butterflies, dragonflies, and mammals. A variety of floral species is common to this wetland, with endemic and threatened habitat. From August to April, the park is a popular stopover for migrant birds heading south each year. Birdlife can be observed during this dry spell of the year. The park is operated by Urban Development Authority of the capital city.
From the main entrance, there are two separate paths in the park visitors can explore. A wooden path bordered by Diyawanna Lake is created so that natural habitat remains protected. A short walk on this path allows visitors to observe a vast array of plant and bird species. A duck-filled pond nearby adds to the beauty of the park’s peaceful environs. The second path, known as the Forest Trail, takes visitors into the heart of the park via a leafy dirt trail. At the end of this track, a wooden deck named Diyawanna Floating Deck allows a beautiful view of the wetlands. A short walk past the park school, the Migratory Bird Trail is a great place to spot different bird species. All in all, Beddagana Wetland Park is a perfect spot to come close to nature.
