The Victoria Park in Nuwara Eliya, was named in commemoration of the 60th Jubilee Coronation of Queen Victoria, in the year 1897.
Originally, the park was used, as the research field of the Hakgala Botanical Garden, located about 04 km away from the city centre.
This park was established by planting an Oak tree, by a German Princess, who visited Nuwara Eliya, during the latter part of the 19th Century. The park is 27 acres in extent and about 90% of its tree species, are of foreign origin. Nanu Oya, (stream), which flows through the park as well as several lakes within it, enhances, its beauty.
Many rare species of birds, such as the Indian Blue Robin, Pled Thrush / Scaly Thrush and the attractive Kashmir Flycatcher, can be spotted in the park, making it a wholesome experience to its visitors. The Victoria park, is a place to relax and enjoy, the natural beauty, serenity and the clean mountain air of Nuwara Eliya.
