Thara Park

Great picnic spot

What we say: 2.5 stars

If you head south from Chao Fah pier on to Khong Kha Road, you'll first pass Chao Fa Park and its riverside promenade.

Continue past the marina and you'll come to Thara Park, which for a small city is quite a large and impressive public green space. It features benches and gazebos overlooking the river, a large central section with playgrounds shaded by tall trees, a pro-size football pitch, basketball courts, free exercise equipment, kayak rental and a string of vendors who sell spicy Thai salads, grilled chicken and cold drinks.

The park is mainly frequented by locals out for a picnic or romantic stroll along the river. While not a "must-see", Thara is a pleasant spot to watch the sunset or go for a morning jog.
