Don’t worry, nobody got tetanus

Overall, Chiang Mai is a very green city, with lots of trees and various green spaces everywhere, but there really aren’t a lot of parks like we’re lucky enough to have in Tacoma. So, when I heard there was a park with a playground in the southwest corner of the Old City, we headed out to see what we could find.

Buak Hat Park is relatively small, but it has a fish pond, a gazebo, and enough green space to feel like you’ve left the busy streets behind.

We bought a bag of fish food:

And as it turns out, the birds like to eat, too:

At last we found the small playground in the far corner of the park. It was all metal playground equipment that looked like it had never been repainted since it was first installed in the 1960s:

Despite the forlorn playground equipment, there were four or five other kids there, and much fun was had by all. We left the park covered in mud and bird seed, ready for a nap.
