Somdet Phra Srinagarindra Park, Phra Nakhon Si Ayutthaya is located on Uthong Road within the area of the Ayutthaya Historical Park in the western part of Ko Mueang, or the City Island. Open to the public in 1985, it is the second park built to celebrate Princess Srinagarindra’s 80th birthday.
Its large area is left in the original condition as much as possible in case of future archaeological excavations which are possible throughout the area of the Ayutthaya Historical Park. Serving as a public park, it is an area where local residents can relax and do exercises. A number of large trees can be found throughout the park, some of which are the kinds of trees mentioned in literature. This allows visitors to see and gain knowledge about those plants. The park also has a Thai-style pavilion and ruins from ancient Ayutthaya. Moreover, there is a plan to develop some parts of the park into a herbal park.
The park’s most prominent point is the monument of Princess Srinagarindra which was officially opened in 2000 by Princess Chulabhorn Walailak, as representative of His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej.
