We have been coming here for years and with the admissions fee of 20 Baht, they have used the money to improve restrooms and the ground. Maintenance and upkeep has kept everything well-groomed. There's plenty of space for bicycles, walkers, joggers. With the new rules, they have made everything a little safer. The only drawback is in the evening, it is packed full of young people who have no regard for others as they are zipping around on their bikes. If you go, I recommend going in the morning.

I was kinda surprised seeing all this people doing sports in this park. The opportunities in this park are quite enough for workout. The park itself is very beautiful, there are a lot of squirrels and birds; I saw a turtle as well. The only thing is that I could be really noisy course of the busy street next to the park.

Big park with plenty of space to sit beside the pond. The running route is about 3 kilometers and lots of people coming in the evening and weekends. Right next to the BTS and MRT but if you drive there are 4 free parking lots to choose from (including the large lot across the road). Love this park for the big trees, runners, activities (aerobics in the evenings) and the great location!

Nice park that juxtaposes against the concrete jungle. It seems that the place has a historic semblance and generally, the park is well kept and a great place to be to break away from the built environment. On my second visit, it was raining heavily and if you’ve been to the area, flooding is pretty common and you will be soaked to the ankles on the streets. As to the park, the concrete / rock paths retain water and there will be large puddles of water that you may have to navigate carefully around or tread through. Wear shoes and they’ll be wet - so if there’s a forecast of rain or the sky looks gloomy in the morning, if recommend slippers or flip flops.

10,000 stalls if you can't find it there it probably doesn't exist, remember it's always hot there and congested to boot. No trip to bkk is complete without a weekend trip to chatuchak and wear comfortable shoes you'll be glad you did
