Built on 11.6 acres of land, and located conveniently close to Emporium shopping complex, with the presence of trees in the Benchasiri Park campus and well-sheltered walkways ensures that it is crowded, even under the harsh sun. People visit here to generally take shelter from the sweltering heat outside, read a book, throw food to the pigeons, or just simply soak in the sound of the swishing wind. The Benjasiri Park has a simple and plain architecture with the entrance embellished by a huge golden image of Queen Sirikit.
