Lumpini Park in located deep in the center of Metropolitan Bangkok, between Silom and Sathorn Roads and off of Rama IV Road. The park has several large lakes which cool the hot city air and provide a nice living area for many interesting creatures. There are also many beautiful well maintained garden areas, full of tropical plants and flowers. The lakes and the gardens provide the perfect foregrounds for the city skyline surrounding the park.
Living so close to one of Bangkok's nicest inner city parks, I frequent the park and often have my camera. I would like to share with you photos of some of the wildlife found in the park. Many very large monitor lizards can be seen in the many lakes found in the parks. They are often seen swimming in the lakes but also look up! They can be also seen in the trees surrounding the lakes. Not to worry though they do not bother with people visiting the park and are quite shy if approached.
Many other water animals including water fowl and turtles of various sizes and shapes inhabit the lakes and Thai people can be seen feeding the fish in the lakes, which are teaming with large catfish.
