Private Day Trip: Nuwara Eliya from Kandy by Train
Attraction details
Reviewed 6 May 2014

These municipal gardens are very pretty and quite well tended as long as you don't look beyond the main spaces. They are a great place to stroll and there is an interesting little photo museum by the gate. It's a shame that a foreigner has to pay 400 rupees every time they want to stroll through though. Would have revisited in finer weather if the entry fee was he same as the locals.

Surprisingly Nuwaraeliya offers you 2 Botanical gardens & a golf course in close proximity to each other so one must arrange the journey accordingly to avoid monotony & fatigue as to explore two of them in a single day would be useless & tiring.
Garden is full of flowering & non Flowering trees & bushes, & really attractive.
Best period to visit is during March & May.

The fact that this park is rated so highly definitely has more to do with how little there is to see or do in Nureliya than anything the park has to offer. It is really nothing special at all-compared to the botanical gardens in Kandy for example, and not worth visiting unless you are really bored in Nureliya.

We walked in the sun from the St Andrews hotel through the town to the park. It was generally clean and tidy with several people either sweeping leaves up or planting shrubs. Formal pools, and gardens, bandstands and summer houses, except for the pond herons and magpie robins, we could have been in any park in the uk. The only downside was the amount of plastic rubbish in the stream, which in truth was only visible because we where chasing birds. Well worth the 300rp charged to foreigners.

An hour is plenty of time and the walk through the town is fascinating and well worth the time in itself. If you like birds then you will spend longer.
