Suan Luang Rama IX Park is the largest public park in Bangkok and is located in the Bang Na area. A good distance away from any BTS or MRT station, this tranquil and peaceful park is the perfect spot for those that wish to get away from the tourists and forget that you're in a big city for a few hours.

The park was created to celebrate the 60th Birthday of His Majesty the King in 1987 and there is a museum in the park dedicated to his work. This is also a popular place to jog with a trail that winds through the park's landscape of trees and pagoda's and there is a large lake in the middle with swan and duck shaped peddle boats that you can rent.

Most evenings from 17.00 there is also free aerobics available but the loud music might not be to everyone's liking. Early in December, around the time of the King’s Birthday, the park holds a popular flower festival.
Easiest reached by taxi from BTS stations On Nut or Udom Suk, Rama IX Park is located on Srinagarindra road just behind Seacon Square.
