Located in close proximity to the Bellanwila Temple (Bellanwila Rajamaha Viharaya), this wet land covers an area of 372 hectares. This place is ideal for watching birds, especially migrant birds, during the months of September and April.
Flocks of birds from countries like Siberia, India and Europe can be seen here. In addition the migrant birds, you can enjoy watching many species of local birds as well.
The best travelled trail begins close to the information centre at Attidiya and continues through the marsh, alongside the Bolgoda canal on to the opposite boundary of the park on Attidiya road. Halfway down the trail there is a viewing tower built by the department for nature lovers to view the wildlife of the park at close quarters.
