Joyful exuberance in Colombo Sep 09, 2013
Is this the happiest place in Sri Lanka? Maybe it should more correctly be called Galle Face Brown because there is no green in sight. Nestled against the sea, this area welcomes all comers to enjoy the afternoon while flying kites, playing cricket, eating from many of the market stalls, having picnics, swimming and generally just enjoying one another's company. On the weekends the place is very active towards sunset with scores of tuk-tuks, taxis and private cars jostling for car parking sites. When I visited I couldnt help but be amazed at the happiness of the locals. The vibe was magnificent and i wished i could participate in every game of cricket and soccer. Highly recommended.

Galleface Green ,Ideal place for walks and relax in vibrant Colombo Sep 13, 2012
Galleface green is located between Gallface hotel and Galadari hotel Colombo. It's a greenery area in beach front where you can have nice walks or relax overlooking at the sea.

In early British period, British used this area as their recreational area for various kind of recreational activities.

they used to play Cricket,rugby,badminton and associating people.

At present,there is no actual playground but greenery area along the beach side.There are benches you can sit and relax.there are few movable food stall, if you want to try hot spicy food,drinks or sweats.

Of course this is a free entrance place.

Easiest way to get there.Ask from a tuk tuk to drop you at gallface.

just walk,relax and take some photos.
