Situated in front of the colonial-era Town Hall building, the park is named after Queen Viharamahadevi, the mother of King Dutugamunu. The park was built on land donated to the Colombo city by Charles Henry de Soysa during the British rule of Sri Lanka, and used to be named "Victoria Park" after Queen Victoria.
It also includes a mini zoo, a children's play area and a BAC Jet Provost.
Located at its western end is the Cenotaph War Memorial, Colombo and the Colombo Public Library. The Viharamahadevi Park Open Air Stadium is a venue for concerts and public events.
Behind the golden seated Buddha, you will find a long rectangular pond formed of Italian style lined with trees and fountains. The park is open from 8.00 am to 6.00 pm. There is no entrance fee. In this park, sanitary facilities also available. If you are lucky, you can visit the park when one of the special exhibitions is open. They range from art shows, cultural shows, outdoor theater shows, music concerts to garden shows.
There are many number of stray dogs in the park. Do not touch or feed them in case they have rabies.
