Tucked into a corner of the Chiang Mai University campus beside the Convention Center is the Princess Mothers Health Garden.
I talked about visiting this park in a previous post, but was mostly talking about all the circuit training stations places all around the park.
What I didn’t mention is that there’s a great paved running path around the park.
It’s marked as 300 meters around, and is fully shaded. It meanders a bit, so it’s a little more interesting than just running on a track, and is not at all crowded. I think I only saw two other people there on the day I went.
If the 300 meter loop is too short for your liking, you can also run around the Convention Center area, which is connected to the park, or use this loop as part of a running tour of campus.
This park can be a little bit difficult to find. It is just north of the Convention Center, and if you are on Nimmanahaeminda Road in front of the Convention Center, you will be able to see it to your left as you are looking at the Convention Center.
The gate into the park is on Sai 26 Road. Just turn right on Sai 26 and you will see the park entrance.
