The CU Centenary Park was created to provide a green space for the city and celebrate Chulalongkorn University’s 100th anniversary. Located in the center of shopping and commerce, the park is designed as a multi-functional “urban forest”, which serves as an oasis for the residents and visitors of Bangkok wishing to spend quality leisure time in a lush and pleasant environment. The park includes a constructed wetland, with a rain garden, retention pond and an underground water drainage system. It also holds an interactive virtual museum featuring historical and socially engaging topics, with life-like exhibits periodically showcased at the main hall of the park. Apart from the greenery of the trees and shrubs, park-goers can benefit from the many organized public activities, which are all in line with the university’s goal to foster a smart and inclusive society.

The sense of kinship and warmth found in the Chula community is priceless and a treasure worth keeping.
