Lumpini Park - Bangkok's first public park

Lumpini Park Bangkok

 

Lumpini Park

Named after the birthplace of the Lord Buddha in Nepal, Lumpini Park is an enormous green sanctuary in the centre of the city, habitat of rare flora and wildlife residents such as monitor lizards and huge land snails. Initially laid out in the 1920s to stage an agricultural exhibition, the land became Bangkok’s first public park. Swan paddleboats can be rented at the lake, the pathways are perfect for jogging, there is an outdoor gym, and the cool shade of the trees is perfect for picnicking.
