This is the Hurulu Eco Park, part of the Hurulu Forest Reserve which comes under the purview of the Forest Department. Getting the information from a resident at Habarana, we found our way on the Habarana-Trincomalee Road. Coming from Habarana past the railway crossing after 100 meters you can see the Hurulu Eco Park board on your left, between the 116th and 117th km post.
At the moment the park covers an area of 10,000 hectares but there are plans for expansion. The area open to visitors is a drive of around 20 km from the Habarana end.
There are four waterways that run through the park and their sources are streams that have sprung up and joined together. Some are connected to the Hurulu Wewa. Thus the park has been named Hurulu Eco Park as all wildlife here is sustained through these waters.
