  • This Park is of relatively recent creation, was founded in the early 2000s with the restructuring of the banks of the Mekong River, for honesty though I have nostalgia for the past, I have to say that the situation is better now, more orderly, more enlightened and perhaps even frequented on more space. The Park is used by children, from romantic couple at sunset, for athletes who run, bike, walk, roller, by people dancing training, partly from the sellers of the nearby night market. It's a bit as if it were a river town square. Among other things, the statue of King Anouvong, which despite being what a wretched irredentist adventure resulted in the sack and destruction of Vientiane by Siamese, and them looking sword by his side the banks of Nong Khai, revered by locals. I think going to Vientiane without having to this park is like not going to Vientiane.

  • It's a wonderful place. Before 5pm, the road here is still open for vehicles to access, but after that it's closed for Riverside goers. A lots come here to jog and go for aerobic. The Park also houses Vientiane's Night Market.
  • Very well maintained gardens but surrounded by a busy road.
  • King Anouvong statue. King defeated Thais. showing the border of two countries
  • The park itself is fine but the market is nothing special it's just filled with cheap junk and clothes.
  • Its a lovely place.
