  • Wonderful place to spend couple of hours.Very peaceful around the mood and happy feed for fish . Highly recommend this place. 
  • Since we are in the beautiful Bangkok is not the first time, and most visited tourist spots, we decided to show the less known places. This Park is a respectable distance from the Center, so tourists there rarely get. The Park is very large, many different species of plants, among which you can see interesting birds. We were almost the only tourists in the Park, only at the end of the met. The main visitors to the Park-cleaners and janitors:) Too many of them, they are constantly something sweep and clean, and it was unclear for whom the tourists 10 pieces on the entire fleet. Apparently, since they opened). In the park there are several pavilions with various plants (orchids, the creeping plants, succulents (cacti), jungle plants, medicinal plants), etc. Also there is a funny maze from bushes (at the entrance), English park, several ponds with water lilies and lots of places to photograph. Those who have already visited major attractions Bangkok, I highly recommend visiting this park.

Famous for its well managed surrounding & environment which attract locals & foreigners for family relaxing, jogging (4.5 km) and cycling are also available for outdoor enthusiasts. The park also hold annual flower event in the beginning of December. Overall, perfect place for outdoor activities and family relaxing.
  • Great park for morning workouts. Love the scenery and people here. Everything spotless clean and great gardenwork! Flowers, trees water with fish and swans. Fresh air and devices to help with your training. Tip: go early Sunday or Saturday morning (else u can't find a parking place) 🙋

  • Large park with plenty of parking. Tennis courts and swimming pool are available for a low fee. Paddle boats available for rent. The celebrations for Father's Day and some other holidays pack the park with celebrants. The flower/plant show held in early December (~1st-10th) is a great time to visit if you can avoid the weekends.
  • Great weekend family place.. Perfect sunset view from our duckboat .. Only 40 THB for 30min for 2 adults + 1kid..
