Colombo's biggest park, Victoria Park, was laid out by the British in the 19th century in memory of Queen Victoria. In the 1950s it was renamed Viharamahadevi Park to honor the mother of King Dutugemunu.
The Viharamahadevi Park is notable for its flowering trees, which bloom in March, April, and early May. The park is also home to Bo, Ebony, Mahogany, and Sal and Lemon Eucalyptus trees. There is an enormous profusion of climbing plants and rare orchids.
A small children's zoo is located in the middle of the park.
Opposite the park, you can see Colombo's Town Hall, which overlooks the park from the northeast.
