“Small, pleasant park that's a great place to hang out or exercise, right on Sukhumvit”
Reviewed December 27, 2012

I love Benjasiri. I go running here when I can. It's right in the heart of BKK near Emporium/Phrom Phong BTS, but you wouldn't be able to tell! It's so relaxed and pretty and there are always families hanging out, people napping/sketching... yet the park itself is very small compared to places like Lumphini. Good outdoor exercise equipment, a good running track, a swimming pool, a skate park, and a lake. Really good place to spend an evening :)

“Pigeons and litter police.”
Reviewed December 13, 2012

A small park, situated next to The Emporium shoppping centre on Sukhumvit Rd. There is a sign up to tell you not to feed the pigeons, B1,500 fine. However, this does not deter the Thais or the vendors of bread in the park. Can be difficult to find a clean seat to sit down on. Be careful outside the gates of this park. There are litter police watching you. Dropping a small piece of paper or a cigarette butt will earn you a B2,000 fine. If you do get caught, don't argue with them it'll only make things worse.

“Relaxing greenery”
Reviewed December 7, 2012 via mobile

I love this park. Just outside the Emporium this is a wonderful place to go especially in the morning before it gets too hot. Small but big enough to relax and get away from Bangoks noisy streets. Well worth a visit!

“Oasis in a concrete jungle”
Reviewed November 27, 2012

Benjasiri Park, located between Soi 24 and Soi 26 on Sukhumvit Road in Bangkok, is a very nice park with lots to do.

There is an area for the little ones (five and under), takraw courts, basketball courts, fitness machines, swimming pool, and skateboard park.

The park is very well maintained with lots of greenery and flowers.

There are a lot of n-no's to be aware of - no smoking, no throwing trash on the ground, no pets, no alcohol and a host of others. Suffice it say, it is nice place to walk around, sit on a park bench, and just get away from the noise of the Bangkok streets.

There are a couple of small snack shops available and also bathrooms (small fee).

“Nice little park”
Reviewed October 23, 2012

Not too many parks in downtown Bkk so this one is appreciated - next to Emporium mall - lots of turtles in the water, and palm squirrels too - fun to watch the locals do their exercises
