Phra Pok Klao Bridge
The Chao Phraya Skypark opened a month ago at the time when curfews were lifted and city-dwellers felt a little more confident to venture outside. This bridge that links the districts of Khlong San and Phra Nakhon was supposed to be part of the first elevated railway in the country. That never came about and it was abandoned for nearly three decades. The bridge has become a small park of sorts littered with greenery and flowers for pedestrians, cyclists and joggers to enjoy, as well as for those looking for a great view of the sunset or the sunrise on the river. Some may argue that it can’t really be called a “park” because it isn’t that big or green, but I’m just glad that the city’s finally repurposing abandoned structures and make them eco-friendly. Any chance the abandoned Sathorn Unique building can become a high-rise garden/park?
