Colombo Zoological Gardens
Visitors get to see a variety of animals, including a large collection of birds, reptile and fish. The highlight of most people’s trip to the zoo is quite possibly the elephant show, which is held daily at 5:15PM.  Elephant and pony rides are available too!


Galle Face Green Promenade
Located by the Indian Ocean and along Galle Road, this green grassy area set on 13 acres is where people come to rest, eat and enjoy the beautiful sunset. During the war it was heavily guarded, but now the public are able to walk freely. National and Independence Day events are held here with great gusto and during the kite season, the sky is dotted with colourful kites flying in the sea breeze.


Viharamahadevi Park
The oldest park in Colombo, Viharamahadevi has water channels, statutes of elephants, impeccably kept lawns and shaded areas of cinammon, citronella and frangipani. You can enjoy the smell of fresh blooms during March, April and May. There’s a play area for children, which comes with a miniature train and baby animals. Viharamahadevi Park is located in the Cinnamon Gardens area next to the Town Hall.
