Lumpini Park is a beautiful park located in the business district. A mini version of Central Park in NY, but with a much more relaxed feeling.
Everywhere you look there are gardens and sculptures. Sad to see the number of homeless, but I guess every city has its share. Here are some pictures from our walk in the park, plus a few from our walk to and from.
I found this building very interesting. Looks like a giant Jenga or an incomplete Lego building.
View of the skyline, I love the uniformity of the buildings.
Now onto the gardens. We have a beautiful view of Lumpini Park from our hotel room, but the size was definitely underestimated. Like any large park, there are entrances at all four corners and when you walk in you can’t help but feel the tranquility. People jogging, walking or just relaxing on a bench or in a garden.
This sculpture is titled “Sagittarius” and was constructed in honor of the Kings 80th birthday.
Clock tower right at the entrance, the sign was all in Thai so we don’t have any historical info.
And what park would be complete without swan boats?
“A Mothers Love”, constructed in 1992 in honor of the Queens 60th birthday.
Winner of “Women in the Next Three Decades” Contest in 1997
Apparently, badminton is serious business in Thailand, it has its own association.
There are two different pagodas nestled in the park.
Some random gardens and florals.
A whole section of the park is dedicated to exercise with equipment circling a large grass area.
