Located a few meters from the Grand Palace and Wat Po lies the idyllic Saranrom Park. This slice of green offers a welcome respite from the chaotic atmosphere of the major cultural attractions of Rattanakosin Island and is virtually unknown to the tourist trade. Originally part of a palace built by King Rama IV in 1866 the current landscape is much as he designed it. Stroll along its shaded walkways to see a small Chinese shrine and other monuments to Thai royalty. The exquisitely manicured lawns, bubbling fountains, towering trees and brightly colored flowers all add to the aura of solitude that permeates the park. Sit under a shady tree, sip a cool drink and watch the park come alive with birds and other local small animals. Exit the rear of the park to find the small Wat Ratchapradit. Across the small canal you will find the unusual curved Ubosot and Royal Cemetery of Wat Ratchabophit, well worth a visit.

This was a nice find, near the Royal Palace, a true green oasis in an otherwise busy and crowded and hot city...nice to stroll here and hang out!

Diagonally opposite of Wat Po and across from the rear of the Grand Palace is an almost forgotten shady oasis known as Saranrom Park. The park makes for an interesting place to rest if you're trying to explore the old royal city beyond the confines of the Grand Palace and Wat Po.Inside the park you can check out the Chao Mae Takhien Deity.This shrine to the spirit of the Takhien tree in the form of a three-level, octagonal Chinese pavilion.Also there are some good little traditional Thai Housesthe late afternoon this park is a popular place for locals to exercise ;jogging,walking.arobics.tai chi ,ballroom dancing & yoga can be seen.
In This park was originally a Royal Park in Saranrom Palace, which King Rama IV ordered to be built as a residence towards the end of his reign.(The old palace has now been restored).

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.

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!

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.

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 .

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.

We were thinking of visiting the royal palace, but were put off by the many tour buses outside and the steep entrance fee. Instead, we explored this gem of a park just across the street. I’m glad we did.

It is beautifully landscaped and maintained with lots to see and do, or just relax. There are ponds with huge fish and water lilies, benches and pavilions, small, picturesque huts, a playground, outdoor gym, toilets etc.

It felt cooler than the street, so I recommend a little break there if you want to escape heat, traffic and crowds.

Bangkok is full of parks and this is another wonderful park that is kept clean and beautiful with statues and ponds and wildlife. It's just incredible how wonderful these parks are kept up.
