This is one of the oldest park of Colombo, nicely maintained one.. though during our visit there was some political movement. However, it was not a large gathering. The budda statue was the main attraction here.. this would be beautiful place for morning jog

A very big park with a lot of fountains. It has a Buddha statue at the entrance of the park. Nice place to spend a quite evening after a hectic city tour. The park is opposite the Independence Memorial Hall.
