City Hall has let the dogs out at Benjakitti Park with the official opening of its new pooch-friendly area.

Downtown dog pals have a place to take their best friends – on a leash – at the popular public park after the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration agreed to create a small area where dogs can walk, and of course, poop.

Given that this is a City Hall project, there are of course unnecessarily complex rules. 

The first rule of dog park is simple: Only dogs are allowed. The park is open 5am to 9pm.

The second rule of dog park is that people must register using a Google Form in semi-English or check in their dogs to use it. Dogs will be issued dog codes.

One can not simply walk into dog park, as a security guard will be checking for proof of registration or check in

Finally, owners must carry bags and immediately scoop their poop and throw it in a bin. 

The dog park does have a “dog toilet” area to facilitate this.

Find it near the main entrance on Ratchadaphisek Road or the community gate at the end of Soi Sukhumvit 10.
