About Viharamahadevi Park in Colombo

Located in the heart of Colombo city, Viharamahadevi Park is also known as Victoria Park. Situated next to the national museum of Colombo, it is Colombo’s largest public park with an area of 50 acres. It is named after the mother of Sinhalese King Dutugamunu.

Viharamahadevi Park History

During the Second World War, the park was occupied by the British Army and was named Victoria Park. Maintained and operated by the municipal council of Colombo, the park remains open for 24 hours. Home to a magnificent golden statue of Buddha, the park is also notable for palm trees, a mini zoo, and clean walking paths.

Having gone through a recent renovation work, the park has clean walkways, playgrounds, and comfy benches, and visited by plenty of urbanites every day. People with family and loved ones come here to enjoy a sunny day or catch an afternoon nap. Besides the statue of Lord Buddha, the park features a series of water fountains, mini zoo, and many more things. There is no Viharamahadevi Park tickets as it's a public park.

The park’s beauty is enhanced during the spring season as the various species of flowers that bloom. Visitors can admire lush greenery and various species of palm trees lined along the walking paths. A water pool and an aquarium at the center of the park is the main highlight. Kids can enjoy elephant and horse rides in the park as well as swings, slides, and more. The zoo at Viharamahadevi Park is home to many birds and animals such as leopard, cheetah, lion, and deer. The western side of the park features a public library and the Cenotaph War Memorial. Cycling is another popular activity to do in Viharamahadevi Park. The park premise has well-placed intermittent resting points with benches and seating areas. Food vendors in the park sell everything from local pickles to fruits.
