Chaloem Phrakiat Lotus Park (อุทยานบัวเฉลิมพระเกียรติ) is located just 7km past Kasetsart University on the left side of Route 22. Built by Kasetsart in 2010, the park is open from 8am - 6pm. Some people go there around 5pm, thinking that time of day has the best sunlight for photographs. However, if you want to see the most amount of lotus flowers in bloom, you should go early in the morning, as many of the flowers close up later in the afternoon.
The garden pond at the park (also spelled Chalermphrakiat Lotus Park) is intersected by a wooden walkway and overlooked by a giant Naga serpent, the pond showcases 34 different types of lotus flowers. Another 74 species appear in nearby pots. There is information about each type of lotus flower on pegged signs translated into English. You can rent a bike for only 10 baht to tour around an adjacent small lake, or rent a turtle paddle boat to cruise around, which is especially nice during the Sakon Nakhon cool season from December - February.
