Nong Prajak Park

Our rating:

Named after Udon’s founder, Nong Prajak Park covers a very large area on the west side of town, including a wide human-made lake with a giant rubber duckie and an “At Udon Thani” sign that shows up in more than a few traveller’s photos.

This is where the locals come to exercise and escape the noise of a big city.

The park has a few entrances to the east, south and west, each leading to a network of footpaths that meander onto peninsulas stretching out into the water. Benches, pavilions and playgrounds abound, and kids will have fun on two suspension footbridges that move slightly up and down when you walk on them. Grab some Vietnamese food from nearby VT Namnueng for a lovely picnic amid the tree-lined landscape.

A walkway that draws a number of joggers and cyclists in the mornings and early evenings rims almost the entire park; a particularly shady stretch on the east side is perfect for an after-dinner stroll.

Also on the east side, just across Tasa Road, you’ll find at least a dozen Thai massage shops (not the naughty kind) offering body and foot massages for just 180 baht per hour. The TAT office and abundant coffee shops and eateries are also located here.
