It’s nice out
Dec 2019
It’s nice out in the park here. It was good to see such a beautiful park, although it wasn’t as big as some I’ve been in. I was asked to do an interview for a group of students talking to foreigners about what they enjoyed most in Thailand. I wanted to tell them about how much I enjoyed my time in Patpong but I thought better of it and was a bit stuck for what to say. In the end I told them nothing in particular because I couldn’t think of anything to compare with Patpong apart from perhaps Soi Cowboy.

Beautiful Park
Dec 2019
This park is so close to the most highly rated attractions on Rattanakosin Island that I recommend including it in a tour, for example if walking from the temple of the reclining Buddha to the temple of the emerald Buddha (both in TripAdvisor’s top 5 ranked attractions in Bangkok) walk through the park rather than follow the road.

There is an ornate fountain reminiscent of something that might be found in Versailles. There is a European influence about the style of the decaying buildings here. An inscription on a boulder near the main gate tells us that the park was part of a royal palace built in 1866 and later (1960) opened to the public.

Large-billed Crows were moving about in the tops of the old trees and swooping down to feed on the scraps left by visitors. An Asian Koel was making the call which gives it its name “ko-el ko-el ko-el”; these birds are known for their cuckoo-like behavior laying their eggs in the nests of another species of bird, in this case the Large-billed Crow. A little ecosystem within a concrete city!

Nicely landscaped
Dec 2019 • Solo
Beautifully landscaped park. Many orchids on display along the eastern edge. Lots of shade trees and seating options, and a waterway with fountain. A bit of street noise, but that's to be expected. Other than a small children's play area and a fitness area, there are no real facilities here. Just shady benches and nice scenery.

Beautiful local park
Dec 2018 • Friends
During our vacation in Bangkok we had visited the Wat Ratchabophit and then walked across the street over a small bridge to reach this beautiful park. The park has paved walkway for walkers, joggers and runners. Many tourists were relaxing on the manicured lawn surrounding a small lake. There were yellow flowers and we clicked pics amidst them. To our surprise we saw a small tortoise resting on the bank of the lake and it was fun clicking pictures.

Relax
Aug 2019 • Couples
What great 'green' park close to Grand Palace. Popped in on way to Chinatiwn and was pleasantly surprised at the wonderful shaded areas. The free exercise area with equipment happened to be covered in shade which seemed to help the locals workout longer. Very relaxing park and worthy of a visit if close by.

Captivates the true Thai Culture.
Aug 2019 • Solo
I arrived at 7.30am and the park was full of locals enjoying life to the full. Running, exercise, meditation, relaxing, playing it was so good to see. The park is compact and contains water features and a fine selection of very old trees. Well worth a short visit to experience the true Thai Culture.

Beautiful little park
Jan 2019 • Couples
Beautiful little park with some beautiful old trees just across the street from Wat Po and the Grand Palace. Nice place to escape the tourist crowds, traffic and heat and to relax. Peaceful and quiet.
On the other side of the park, just behind Wat Ratchabophit, there is a small canal next to traditional wooden chinese shophouses that are worth having a look at .

Relaxing 😎 after The Grand Palace crowds
Jan 2019 • Family
Located in neighbourhood of The Grand Palace. Relax when you are tired from crowds visiting biggest attraction on other side of street. Benches to sit, probably not so much lying on the ground as lizards are there frequent visitors.

Exceptional trees
Dec 2018
A royal garden that was converted into a public park attracting locals interested in activity. There are two spots with fitness equipment (free to use), a table tennis court, a space for youngsters to play ball and a playground for little children. You see many people walking or jogging a circle. Old tall trees provide shade and the tropical vegetation including orchids is well kept. There are some benches to sit and read something. Pleasant garden.

There are public toilets, but I did not check them out.
