Lumpini Park typifies what an inner city haven should be. Set among apartments in the centre of Bangkok, with the ever-busy Silom and Sathorn to the south and mega malls of Chidlom and Ploenchit to the north, this park offers peace and shade.
Lumpini park is 360 rai (142 acre) in size with huge popularity, and where one is always afforded plenty of space to have fun, relax, or be at one with nature. You’ll be sure to see plenty of joggers and picnic lovers as well as those escaping the inner city hustle during their lunch break.
Benjasiri Park / Benjakitti Park
Benjasiri and Benjakitti are two parks close to the bright lights and cosmopolitan communities of upper Sukhumvit Road, the lifeline of the capital. The neighbourhoods here are a hotbed of modern Bangkok apartments and condominiums, popular with the expat community.
Benjasiri is close to Phrom Phnog BTS station, and the plush, hi-so Emporium mall. With lots of pathway, dedicated workout areas, a decent sized lake, and a multitude of gardens and sculptures, there are plenty of visuals to make this a very pleasant and peaceful walk.
The Benjakitti Park is set around a large lake, situated on 22-hectares of land, close to the busy Asoke intersection. The stunning manicured landscapes and botanical gardens make for a very serene and tranquil setting, and the park’s 2 KM of pathway which loops around the lake is very popular with joggers, strollers, and of course the city’s pet walkers. The path is also wide enough to cancel out any potential congestion, whilst cyclists get their own track on the outside of the pathway.
A park best known and loved for its huge weekend market, Chatuchak park is located to the north of Bangkok, close to Mo Chit BTS station and the Northern Bus Terminal. A park rivalling Lumpini in size but boasting even more attractions and activities, Chatuchak is far more than just a market location. Here you’ll find a number of winding pathways and running tracks, you’ll rarely have to take the same route around or through the wonderful greenery. In terms of eye candy, here you’ll find lots of landscaped gardens, fish ponds, and other natural beauty including the Thai Literature and Herb Garden.
King Rama IX Park
Located to the east of the city, towards Suvarnabhumi International Airport, Rama IX has lots to offer pet lovers living in Bangkok. The park is split into different zones each with its own unique visual stimulation, including ‘The Garden of the Great King’ featuring the stunning yellow Ratchapreuk trees symbolic of the king, and the international garden with plants from seven different countries of the world.
*Sadly, dogs are currently not allowed into Lumpini Park.
