LANDSCAPE DESIGN CONCEPT
This royal Park was built in commemoration of the 50th anniversary of the coronation of the King of Thailand, on the bank of the Chaophraya River, and adjacent to the Chalermphrakiert Royal Temple. The main design concept was to preserve and emphasize the site’s relationship to the river, as well as the Central Thai people’s unique cultural relationship with the rivers and canals of the flood plain. The park serves as a public amenity with a multitude of aquatic-related educational and recreational facilities. Half of the site is dedicated to the conservation of a disappearing type of cultural landscape. The existing fruit plantation covering one-third of the park site, a landscape which depends on the annual flooding of the river, was preserved and enlarged.
