Rare open space to run free
Bangkok is not known to be a green city. In fact, it has one of the lowest green space per capita in the region. When locals want to get away from concrete buildings for a brief respite, this park is their chosen location. For the children, it is their playground where they can play tag or ball games.
Mass cardio class
Right before sunset, you might hear upbeat music and an encouraging instructive voice telling people to keep moving. Across Bangkok, free public aerobics classes are held regularly on any available public space. It is no different in this Bang Rak park. Classes are open to anyone, so simply put on your workout gear and join.
Fishing by the river
This park is located next to the main river pier for public boats and Sathorn canal, which runs into the city. A stroll down the path along the canal reveals a popular but rarely-seen activity. Whether for leisure or for a meal, many residents come to fish at the spot where the canal meets the river.
