The cool thing about this park is that it actually used to be abandoned, but the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA) decided to give it some colour and add a playground to the area.

Urban explorers love coming here and taking snaps of themselves at corners of the nearby abandoned buildings for the ‘gram. If you’re an avid photographer or budding IG model, the park’s going to add some swag to your feed for sure.

The playground, though covered in art, is functional, and the graffiti sprayed around the area is constantly changing too.

That makes this spot a pretty cool hangout to frequent with your friends to see what new art pieces pop up each time.
