A royal park formally named after her highness Queen Victoria of Great Britain in 1897. The park is in the center of Nuwara Eliya and is one of the most attractive town parks in the country. It was first used as a research field of the Hakgala Botanical Garden, and was established by planting an Oak tree by a German Princess. Many up-country bird species can be found in the park including Kashmir flycatchers. Nanu Orya river flows through and adds more beauty to the park. The park gets filled up with colourful flowers during March to May and August to September. It is a perfect place to hangaround with kids, there is a kids play area and a miniature train.
