Visitors to Nakhon Pathom might want to come here to relax or exercise during their stay.
The park offers a nice retreat from the often noisy streets of the city. This is also a great place if you're travelling with kids and want to keep them amused for an afternoon. Near the enterance is a small deer petting enclosure and a few food stalls, and there's also a run-down amuesment park that looks like something you might have found in California in the 1950's, complete with miniature railway, ferris wheel and merry-go-round. Venture further and you'll find a public swimming pool, sports ground, outdoor gym equipment and rose garden. There are classical Thai performances stage in the park on weekends from 13:30.
How to get there
The park is about 1.5km west of the Chedi in Ratchadamnoen Rd. Cross over a small bridge at the end of the road and you're there.
