The Royal Palace Park, also known as Wale Park, is a small park on top a small hill in the city of Kandy, which overlooks Kandy Lake and most of the city.  Established by King Sri Vikrama Rajasinha of Sri Lanka it was renamed as Wales Park in honor of the Prince of Wales by the British.

The hill, where the park is currently situated, was known as Castle Hill by the British, as it was the site of the palace of Konappu Bandara, who ruled as Vimaladharmasuriya I of Kandy from 1590 to 1604.

The entrance fee for Lankans is LKR 70 and the fee for foreign visitors is around LKR 220. The park is covered with beautiful flowers and trees. Visitors could take beautiful photographs and could spend some quality time observing the nature.  In the park is a Japanese field gun which was captured by the British 14th Army in Burma during World War II and presented to the City of Kandy by Lord Mountbatten, Supreme Allied Commander – South East Asia Theatre. The park is considered to be a tourist attraction in Sri Lanka.
