Chuvit Garden

Small and quaint park and gardens along Sukhumvit Road,  boasting flower arrangements, water fountain and adjoining to a museum heritage home of sorts.

Chuvit Garden (Thai: สวนชูวิย์) is also commonly referred to as Chuvit Park (alternate spelling: Chuwit Park) and was created in 2006. It is privately owned by Chuwit Kamolvisit (Thai: ชูวิทย์ กมลวิศิษฎ์) a controversial Thai politician and massage parlour owner.

The story behind this park is shadier than the plantings. Khun Chuvit, the benefactor of the park, was Bangkok's biggest massage parlour owner. He was arrested in 2003 for illegally bulldozing, rather than legally evicting, tenants off the land where the park now stands (between Soi 8 and 10).

With all the media attention, he sang like a bird about the police bribes he handed out during his career and became an unlikely activist against police corruption. Chuvit later ran unsuccessfully for Bangkok governor in 2004 and successfully for the Thai parliament in 2005. This park was one of his campaign promises. It's a pretty green patch in a neighbourhood lean on trees.

The entrance gate pillars carry the following rather unexpected inscription:
Chuvit Garden - Named in honor of Mr. Chuvit Kamolvisit - Dedicated to the Lord Jesus Christ 29th August 2005 to God be the glory

The garden is open to the public between 6:00 AM and 7:00 PM. It is very well maintained, safe to visit and a quiet place to relax. The rear area of the park is especially popular with families with young children.    Phone: 0-2260-8001 Ext. 8205   Fax: 0-2254-8787
