Officially opened in 1997 by King Bhumibol Adulyadej, The Princess Mother Memorial Park in Bangkok commemorates the life and work of Princess Srinagarindra, the late king’s mother.
In addition to landscaped gardens, the grounds contain a reproduction of the royal mother’s childhood home and two exhibition halls displaying memorabilia related to the princess and the royal family. A pavilion in the park likewise features a statue of Princess Srinagarindra.
Also in the park is a souvenir shop where visitors can purchase items associated with the charitable foundations and social welfare organisations once under the princess’s patronage. The groups continue to operate, with proceeds assisting those in need throughout Thailand.
The Princess Mother Memorial Park is open every day from 6.00 a.m. to 6 p.m. The park’s exhibition halls are open to visitors from 8.30 a.m. to 4.30 p.m.; halls are closed on public holidays.
The Princess Mother Memorial Park is on the Thonburi side of the Chao Phraya River. You can get there from Novotel Bangkok Silom Road by metered taxi or a combination of metered taxi and riverboat. Travel time is approximately 30 minutes depending on traffic.
