Nice spot to go in the early morning for a walk or run or just to relax. There are many people doing Tai Chi. There are very basic weights available for some lifting at the north eastern corner.

A great, quite place to go chill by the pond and most importantly- really the best massage in Thailand! There's a little shed with local ladies doing thai massage and foot reflexology. She read from my feet that I have a stomack issue and headache and fixed both! 140 bath an hour- can't beat this price/ quality massage anywhere in town. Don't expect a relaxing ambiance, the ladies are chatting non stop there, no music present. But your body will appreciate the after.
