Amphoe Mueang, Nonthaburi
This public park is located a distance from a local temple called WatChaloemPhraKiat. It covers an area of 40 acres. The park was commissioned by the Treasury Department to mark the 50th anniversary of His Majesty King BhumibolAdulyadej’s ascension to the throne, and as a recreation spot for the general public. The park has a fine collection of water plants, garden plants and aquatic animals.
Inside the park, a walk-through pavilion is surrounded by three traditional carved wooden pavilions, made of teak, primed with pure gold leaf and decorated with beautiful glass. Many important royal functions have been held here. Nearby, a group of teak Thai houses built in the traditional Thai style can be enjoyed. At the corner by the river is the former residence of Nonthaburi's governor. Nearby fruit orchards offer scenic walks among durian, mangosteen, jackfruit and coconut trees.
To get there, drive along Bang Kruai-SaiNoi route, and turn towards Nonthaburi Pier. From Bangkok, cross PhraNangklao Bridge towards Bang Phlu junction, turn left to SuanKaeo Temple, and then follow the road signs to Kanchanaphisek Park. By boat, take a regular long-tail boat from Nonthaburi Pier along Bang Yai Canal. The boats depart every 20 minutes from Nonthaburi Pier. The trip takes around 5 minutes, costing 7 baht per passenger.
The park is open daily from 5.30 am-6.30 pm. Admission is free.
