Occupying a huge swath of territory a couple of kilometres to the west of the old town, this park features a large green space surrounded on all sides by a wide moat that's only passable by a few footbridges.
Outside the moat are more grassy areas and a walkway that's perfect for a morning jog. The park's centrepiece is a striking statue of King Taksin holding up his sword from the back of a bucking horse that's surrounded by four very tough looking soldiers.
Although not as popular as King Taksin shrine, locals leave offerings before the statue. It's a good place for a picnic, and a couple of inviting coffee shops are just across the street to the east.
