Uda Walawe National Park is situated about 160 kilometers from Colombo and it belongs to both Sabaragamuwa and Uva provinces. The park is situated in a plain area but you can see mountains from North and West. The western perimeter is in fact made of Rakwana Mountains.
The reservoir is man made, but it has seamlessly merged with the natural eco system. River Walawe is the main water resource.
It is one of the best parks in Sri Lanka to see wild elephants. You can see more details here.
