Santichaiprakarn Public Park

Santichaiprakarn Public ParkThis area was formerly abound in perennial trees, especially Banyan and Sonneratiace with firefiles swarming at night.

The site, covering an area of eight and a half rai (approximately 3 acres), belongs to the Crown Property Bureau. It has been slated to be developed as a public park for people recreation, in line with the 8th National Economic and Social Development Plan concerning the enhancement of the people's qualityof life, and the Committee to Conserve and Develop Rattanakosin and Old Cities, formerly the Rattanakosin Island Committee.

The redevelopment is meant to highlight the monument and to clearly define the old Rattanakosin City. Perennial trees are planted, including Golden Showers, Thailand's national tree, Banyan and Sonneratiaceae, to rehabilitate the area and its ecosystem. The special part of the construction includes ramps, handrails and tactile blocks.

His Majesty the King has graciously named the park as "Santichaiprakarn Park".

Phra Sumen Fort
It was built in the reign of King Rama I, in 1783, on the city's outer wall, which ran along the city canal to the Chao Phraya River.

At first, 14 forts were built, but in time they became dilapidated. Eventually, all were demolished, with the exception of Phra Sumen Fort and Mahakan Fort, both of which stand today.

Phra Sumen Fort has been listed as a historical site, published in the Royal Gazette issue 66 section 64 dated November 22, 1949. It is the only city fort left standing on the bank of the Chao Phraya River.

From the renovation work in 1981, it was discovered that the base of the Fort and the wall are laid two meters deep, with the height at the top marker of the Fort measured at 10.50 meters, to the roof of the turret 16.90 meters, and the entire length of 45 meters.

Phra Sumen Fort is of three stages, with three staircases on the inside, and equipped with the bulwark and the board to hide the cannon from sifht. There are doors opening out from the lower and upper stages. To the front of the Fort is a wall with large polygonal markers, each with small angel marks or crosses carved on.

The second stage has a 16-step staircase attached to the back. The wall is decorated with pointed markers, with carved pointed arches below them, four on each side, with three lines of angel marks at intervals. At the center, there are rooms for ammunition and weaponry storage.

The hexagonal turret and the rooftop crumbed down during the Fifth Reign to the Seventh Reign. There were renovated on the occasion of the 200th founding anniversary of Bangkok in 1982.

Santichaiprakarn Royal Pavilion
A tiny royal pavilion, 8.70 by 14.20 meters, is built on an area of 123.54 sq.m., and located within the project area of the renovation of Phra Sumen Fort and the redevelopment of the surrounding areas as a public park. The royal pavilion is simple in design, made of wood, on a brick-and-stucco base, featuring elaborate traditonal-woodworking techniques inherited by Thai artisans. His Majesty the King has graciously named the pavilion as "Santichaiprakarn Pavilion".

Santichaiprakarn Pavilion has been built as a permanent structure representing the Thai people's deep gratitude for His Majesty the King's great kindness. It is a gift to His Majesty the King by the Government and the people to celebrate the Auspicious
