Lake Gregory

Nuwara Eliya’s Lake Gregory, is an artificial lake reminiscent of the Serpentine in Hyde Park, United Kingdom. Constructed in 1873 during the governorship of Sir William Gregory, the lake was built primarily to aid power generation, but soon became a popular spot for recreational activities such as boating and fishing.

Today the lake and its surroundings have been re-developed by the Sri Lankan government and provide an ideal location for picnics, quiet strolls, pony rides or even a quick paddle in a swan boat available for rent.
