More of an elephant sanctuary. It's obvious these elephants are well taken care of. So if you're looking for an elephant park in Thailand that's also ethical then you need to check them out.

It's included in the package and it's only about a 20 minutes trek both way. You can also walk beside the elephant if you don't want to ride it.
