Construction of Tomlin Park
The development of Tomlin Park is one of the prioritized sub projects of the SCDP under the sub component of the Urban Upgrading in Kandy city. The land under the Tomlin Park was initially vested with the KMC for maintaining it as a vehicle park for the benefit of pilgrims to the Sri Dalada Maligawa.
As per the request of pilgrims, fifteen commercial units (built structures) were constructed by KMC to cater to the needs of pilgrims. The Tomlin Park development subproject requires the demolition of these commercial units for the construction of a new building complex which would primarily serve as a resting place for the pilgrims as well as other visitors to the Kandy city.
