What to do in Colombo when you are with your family and friends? Relax at the Viharamahadevi Park! Feel like a local by sitting on the green lawn along with some snacks while you enjoy the views of the old trees that are towering around. Ramble down the beautifully paved pathways surrounded by lush green grass and palm trees. It’s a great escape from the busy city life right in the center of Colombo.
Walk into the park next to the library and you’ll come across the World War Memorial. It’s a beautiful, quiet space which includes a tower that pays tribute to the local and European soldiers who died in the war. If you cannot find it, get your local guide to show you around.
