    Two Commemorative Plaques for walking path and outdoor gym was unveiled by Secretary Defence.  Minister Wimal Weerawansa joined the Secretary Defence in opening the new public facilities.


    Built in a scenic setting amidst lake side the walking path is yet another addition to the many such facilities built under the Colombo Development Project. Under the Secretary Defence's ambitious plan to develop Colombo into world class city, the clean green people friendly city concept was adopted and is being implemented in all development projects.

Already a number of such facilities have been constructed in many areas including Independence Square, Mabole, Nawela, Bellanwila, and Battaramulla. Construction work was carried out by Sri Lanka Army's Corps of Engineers in collaboration with the Department of Land Reclamation.
