A truly transformed place that is ideal for a work out.
The dusty Weli Park, once popular as a place selling sand and bricks for construction work, has been transformed completely along with its name, now called the Urban Wetland Park, into a pleasant walking track and hangout place. Stretching for a distance of 1.45km the walking track circles the Urban Wetland Park which has a manicured garden, an artificial pond in the shape of the famed lotus pond in Anuradhapura, and plenty of spaces to sit and pass time with friends or family. Visitors are to be warned that the Park is a pet free zone. The track gives a spectacular view of the Diyawanna Oya from the one side and there are few shops to interrupt the impeccable placidity of the place. Parking is ample but finding a spot on weekends can be bit of a hassle.
