I took the Skytrain to Ratchathewi station and as you come down the stairs from the station you walk along the main road and Chalerma Park is about a 5 minute walk from this station.
Chalerma Park i found trendy and fun and is home to tons of small murals and art works that are well worth a look.
It's not a big park but it is certainly a fun and colorful place to relax and there are even a tire swing for you to enjoy while you survey the scene or for the kids to play on.
I was lucky enough today to see the graffiti artist at work one of the guys was Thai and the other guy from Spain they were friends and working together they said they do graffiti work all around Bangkok. I was loving the smell of the can sprays it was bringing back the memories of went i was spraying cars back in my days.
Even this cute little kid was having his go at doing his first bit of graffiti to add on the wall. These guys i was talking to was saying that many graffiti artist come here to practice on these walls you will see different graffiti at this park every time you visit how interesting so if i go back in a couple of weeks everything may be different again.
It is certainly a photographers paradise this park there were many photographers here today that i saw in the time i was there either with there models or girlfriends doing some shoot outs.
So this once abandoned space has now turned into a beautiful urban park, complete with benches, badminton court and tire swings great place for a game of badminton.
In a city of concrete, traffic and pollution Chalermla park is really a breath of fresh air.
How to Get to Chalerma Park: Take the BTS to Ratchatewi station and head towards VIE hotel, and it's in the corner of Petchaburi Road Soi 18.
