Lumpini Park is a public park in the heart of Bangkok’s business district which is a nice place to relax for locals. This park is very crowded in the morning and in the evening especially on weekends. Many people come here to jog and ride bicycles.
You will see the sculptures, tower, and pavilions along the way while you are in the park.

Besides, this park offers tennis court, swimming pool, playground, and library. I was a member of this library. Well, if I am not wrong, all books in the library are Thai books.
And my favorite activity here when I was young was riding the boat in the pool.
This park is bigger than Benjasiri Park and Benjakitti Park and is very convenience to go. If you are living in Bangkok and want to exercise, this park could be your choice.
Update: June, 2014
Location: The park is located on Rama4 road. The easiest way to go there is by either skytrain (BTS) or subway (MRT). For skytrain, get off at Sala Daeng station and take exit no. 5. For subway, you can either get off at Silom station and take exit no. 1 or get off at Lumpini and take exit no. 3. If you choose the last option, you need to walk more distance than the others. The station’s name is misleading!
Admission: It is free to enter the park and enjoy the views, but some activities are not free. For example, the boat’s rental rate is 40 baht for half an hour, but you have to pay 40 baht for deposit. So, 80 baht prepaid, and you will get the deposit back if you return the boat on time.
Lumpini Park opens everyday from 5:00 to 21:00.
The library inside the park opens from Tuesdays to Sundays (Except Mondays and public holidays).
Tuesdays – Saturdays: 8:30-20:00
