Nong Prachak Nong Prachak
Udon Thani Municipality, Tambon Mak Khaeng, Amphoe Mueang, Udon Thani
This large pond existed before the establishment of Udon Thani town. Lying to the west of the town center, it was formerly called “Nong Na Kluea” (pond of salty water) and later changed to “Nong Prachak” in honor of Krommaluang Prachaksinlapakhom, the founder of Udon Thani town.
In 1987, the Udon Thani Municipality renovated the pond as a royal tribute to King Rama IX on the occasion of his 50th birthday anniversary. On an island in the pond, a small garden is filled with decorative and flowering plants, and there is a bridge linking the island with the mainland. Within the park, there is a fountain, a clock tower, pleasant walking trails, and a playground.
The park around the pond is open from 5.00 am – 8.00 pm.
