Galle Face Green - Review

This lovely park, facing the Indian Ocean,  was once a marshland. The British Governor, Sir Henry Ward had it landscaped into a luxury promenade for the wealthy in 1856. Moreover, the clearing gave the cannons at the Fort a clear firing sight at any assaulting force from the sea. Today, it is THE place to be at sunset, when the grand colonial-era buildings surrounding the fort are bathed in crimson light. The half-kilometer long park usually has canoodlers, kite-flyers, joggers and picnickers populating it. In the weekends, food vendors move in to take advantage of the swelling crowds. Overlooking the beach are two of the city's main hotels-the Galle Face Hotel and the Ceylon Inter-Continental Hotel.
