In Lumphini Park, known by many here as Bangkok's Central Park, one can sit in one of the few places in town where you can breathe relatively clean air. The 576-acre park is considered 'the green lung' of the city. It is close to the business center of Bangkok, near the central boulevard Thunam Rama 4th Avenue, and close to the well-known shopping centers of Bangkok. This makes it a perfect escape from the bustle of the city and the long lines at the malls.
The park has shaded walkways, green lawns, impressive trees and numerous walking paths. There is an artificial lake where visitors can sail in pedal boats.
In the early hours of the morning, the park is used by many athletes and sports enthusiasts, especially as a gym and Tai Chi area, but also for sports activities such as jogging, walking, aerobics and basketball. During these hours, visitors can also see many booths to buy snake blood and gall bladder juice, which are considered healthy and important by the Thai and Chinese people.
In the afternoon and towards evening, many families and couples come for a quiet picnic, and during winter evenings there are classical and Thai music concerts, sometimes performed by the Bangkok Symphony Orchestra.
If not in the morning, then arrived at the park in the late afternoon, when the sun is not beating too hard and it's too hot.
In the afternoons, bicycles are not permitted here - riding on the park's routes is permitted only in the early morning and early afternoon hours, and the trails are reserved for runners only.
The park has a handicapped playground and a municipal library.
Winter concerts are held in the Palm Garden every Sunday, February through April, between 4:30 pm and 8 pm.
During kite season you will see a variety of colorful designs above you. It's a charming view!
