Deputy BMA governor Chakkraphan Phiewngarm said the city administration has leased a plot of 100 rai from the Crown Property Bureau to develop the park on Soi 82 off Rama II Road.
The park is part of the BMA’s plan to increase green areas in the capital to a ratio of 9 square metres per resident by 2032. Currently, the BMA has 2,983 rai of parks in the capital, proving parkland at a ratio of 6.14 square metres per person.
The new park is under development with a budget of Bt366.5 million, he said.
It will also be used for flood water retention with a large pond, a project to use plants to treat waste water, and for studying the ecology system.
He said some 20 rai of the land would be allocated for large trees to provide habitat for birds.
