Green park in Bangkok undergoing major expansion into mini-forest

A green park in Bangkok is undergoing a major expansion to become a mini-forest in the heart of the city.

The 72-hectare Benjakitti Forest Park offers a nature trail stretching nearly 6 kilometres, with an area for joggers and bikers alongside a huge pond.

Footage shows the progress so fat on January 5.

As an ‘upgrade,’ the forest park has an indoor gym and outdoor auditorium, as well as a 1.3-kilometre walkway called ‘The Green Mile’ connecting it to the nearby Lumphini eco-park.

The renovations and expansions started in 2016 and are almost done so locals and tourists could expect complete access to the entire project by February.
