Benjakitti Water Park – New green area in centre of Bangkok on old TTM land

Benjakitti Water Park - New green area in centre of Bangkok on old TTM land - Bangkok Post, November 18, 2004
All 430 rai of the Thailand Tobacco Monopoly (TTM) land between Sukhumvit and Rama IV roads, near Queen Sirikit National Convention Centre, will be turned into a public park...
Mr Varathep promised the entire scheme would be completed as planned, allaying concern the land could be leased out to the private sector. "Don't worry. This government will turn another 300 rai into a forest park right after the TTM factories move out,'' he said.
All five TTM factories, warehouses and buildings will be demolished and replaced with trees. Only two buildings--the TTM hospital and the 46-year-old TTM office--will be spared.
