Old Park is a 27 acre urban park in the city of Jaffna in northern Sri Lanka. It was originally built in the 19th century as the gardens and grounds of the residency of the British Government Agent for the Northern Province.

The renovated Old Park was opened to the public in July 2012. It is very easy to go this park by public transport from Jaffna town.

Old Park is the best place in Jaffna to sit and relax under the big trees. And the best place for kids to play in the natural grass.
