Mock up of Bangkok's King Rama IX Memorial Park revealed

BANGKOK (The Nation/Asia News Network): The 279-rai King Rama IX Memorial Park in the heart of Bangkok is expected to be completed in 2024.

The Royal Household Bureau has revealed a mock-up of the park which will be a source of learning about royal initiatives by the late King Bhumibol Adulyadej and Queen Sirikit the Queen Mother through the knowledge of forests and natural water systems.

The memorial park will also feature a royal monument of King Rama IX, with design elements such as a pond and a bridge in the shape of the Thai number 9.

The park reflects the principles of sustainable water management and natural forest with more than 4,500 trees to create a sustainable ecosystem. It will also have exercise equipment, activity areas and various facilities as well as learning centres.

A part of the park has been designed to help collect water during Bangkok’s flood crisis.
