Stroll through Viharamahadevi Park, the oldest and largest park in Colombo. Lush and well-maintained plant life, such as tall trees and colorful flowers, surround the pathways and benches. Walk over the lake's suspension bridge and visit the war memorial, paying tribute to Sri Lankan and European soldiers who died in both world wars. Kids love the extensive play area featuring a massive playhouse, swings, slides, and mini hills. Pick up some cotton candy as you walk over to the small but rewarding aquarium.
