Gregory Lake Reviews & Ratings

  • Great place to have a walk. Wind is so good and cool. Loved the place. You can go for a boat ride here either in a jet ski or in a normal boat. If the wind conditions are just right you can ride swan boats ( you can paddle yourself and go anywhere you want ).

  • Nice Place... Very cool Climate... Entry Fee rs.50/- Wonderful view... Boat ride,bicycle ride Have...

  • Beautiful place to relax with your family. Nuwara Eliya is called the Little England which has a cool climate. Lake Gregory is an ideal place to come with your whole family during the April Season and enjoy the water sports and relax in the part. The down side is during the April Season it is little crowded. There is an entry which will go towards the maintenance of this beautiful park which is very good thing. It is worth coming to this place if you are in Nuwara Eliya! We @ Ivy Bungalow are there to serve you in case you are looking for accommodation!

  • Most famous place in Nuwareliya..Mostly crowded A nice place for relaxing. The landscape is well maintained with flowers and art works. There are entertainments such as boat riding and horse riding. April is the peak of its season. However, its enjoyable throughout the year. Prices are too high

  • Too good to be real! Must visit. This is a famous spot to be visited in Nuwara. Takes about an hour to enjoy the lake view and the various drives conducted over there. The prices are a bit over rated for say, swan ride, jet ski ride or whatever. Couldn't see safety measures existing there-in. Still, the crowd is crazy and the locals keep pushing you to come and give it a try. The water in the lake doesn't look to be very clear as it should be. Maybe that is how the local setup works. Date of Experience : March 2019.
