The lush greenery and the serene waters of Diyawanna by the side of the parliament drive between Rajagiriya and Battaramulla has become a captivating sight for many people who are passing this way daily to and from work in the hustle and bustle of the Colombo city.

For many months people saw how that narrow strip of Diyawanna oya spreading its presence to the nearby greenery with heavy machinery engaged in a 24 hour job in all seven days of the week uninterrupted to make a big difference in the surrounding. Now exactly one year after the commencement of that work people see a vast difference in the surrounding giving them a soothing effect to their eyes to think afresh of their daily affairs. So that project which was initiated as a quick solution for the flooding in Colombo and suburbs with the creation of retention tanks are slowly turning into one of the major attraction in the city now.
