This park was dedicated to the present king's mother who is/was called 'princess mother'. More than one hundred years ago she grew up in this still quiet neighbourhood.
Just a 10 minute walk from Memorial bridge pier : Walk across the green steel girder bridge to 'the other side'(Klong San district), down the stairs, under the stone bridge, follow the road in its right turn and after 500 metres turn left into the most quiet and peaceful neighbourhood.
The park is small, full of works of art. There are two air conditioned exhibition buildings on her life. In there most is explained in Thai, BUT: turn around the moveable wooden tables, and there's English on the reverse.
There is also a Chinese shrine/temple next to the park right by the river.

It's not just the park, but it's the area around the park that is truly old time Bangkok. I went late afternoon and it was so quiet. You could easily feel you were in another world. It was perfectly quiet and this is not easy to find a place in BKK that is so tranquil. Walk around the area ouside the Park as well. As you leave the Park go right and at the first intersection, go right again....and then walk to the main street. Here you can turn around and return, but you will have seen a part of BKK that few do.

Granted, I was taken here by one of my commercial interpreters on a business trip, and granted, she, like all Thais, is justifiably gaga over the Royal Family, but I think I'd have been enchanted even if on my own. Take a Taxi, as parking is weird in this area. The house itself was fascinating, including an intricate form of sewn thatching I'd previously only seen in smaller up-country towns. It was nice to see the kitchen implements and the simple lifestyle of the Queen Mother. The grounds are a photographer's joy, with some ruins, many plants and flowers, towering trees, and immaculate groundskeeping. I am certain I strained the limits of my interpreter's tolerance for pictures. Nice places to sit and take it in. Overall, a small, tidy bit of Thai history in a lovely quiet, relaxed and notably COOL setting.
