Built in 1992 to celebrate Queen Sirikit’s 60th birthday, Benjasiri Park is often referred to as ‘Queen’s Park’. This is definitely the place to be for sculpture lovers, as several of the best examples of Thai sculpture are scattered around the park. The centrepiece fountain, showcasing the work of master sculptor Mesium Yipinsoy, feature multimedia ‘water dance’ shows three times daily (at 6:00, 12:00 and 18:00).
Although the central pond is not big enough to support paddle boats, Benjasiri Park offers outdoor sports facilities rarely found at other public parks, including a basketball court, roller skating/skateboarding rink, outdoor swimming pool and a multi-purpose court for volleyball and sepak takraw.
Opening Hours: 5:00 – 21:00 daily
