Galway's Land National Park

Galway's Land National Park
Galway's Land National Park (Sinhala: ගැල්වේස්ලන්ඩ් ජාතික වනෝද්‍යානය; Tamil: கல்வே நில தேசிய வனம்) is a national park situated in Nuwara Eliya District, Sri Lanka. It is the smallest national park in the country.

The site was declared a sanctuary on 27 May 1938 and upgraded into a National Park on 18 May 2006 through a gazette under Ordinance 1405/18 of the Forest and Flora Ordinance to conserve its montane ecosystem. The total area of the Park is 29.24 hectares (Jayakodi et al., 2018).

The site along with Victoria Park is famous for bird watching in the Nuwara Eliya region. It harbours a number of endemic and migrant bird species.
