New park promises a breath of fresh air for Bangkokians
BANGKOK, Nov 27 (TNA) – Bangkok residents will soon have a new green space, a corridor of vegetation along the Chao Phraya riverfront in the capital's central historic area.
The Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA) has spent Bt44 million to create the new multi-purpose open space to provide fresh air and reduce pollution in the area.
The green space preserve covers a land area of 1.5 acres in Tha Tian, on Rattanakosin Island, Bangkok's oldest area where most historical attractions of the early Bangkok era are located.
The BMA expects the new park which, which will open for the public in September 2008, will also create an appealing and beautiful landscape in Bangkok's ancient city centre. (TNA)-E110
