Where's the best places to take children while here in the LOS? I'll start the list:
Lumpini Park, here in Bangkok. My one year old loves to practice his falling on the grass, and there are plenty of places for him to play. Additionally, many activities are held for both parents and children - such as the recent Barbie show, a dancing dinasour show,and a children's products show. I take my son there 2-3 times a week - great place.

I generally head to the park next to the Emporium. It's easy to get the pushchair off the BTS there (no steps!) The park's not great but it's OK (plenty of grass to fall on!) and when the little one dozes off I can idle away an hour or so in Kinokuniya in the Emporium.
Can anyone recommend a boozer with a kid-friendly garden. That's what I've been on the lookout for more than anything ....

Excuse me for not taking this seriously .....
railway park next to mor chit is a much nicer park i think. bigger, less crowded, prettier. the free butterfly farm is definitely worth a look, kids love it. you can rent cycles and kites. there's the "children's discovery museum" next to it and the newly built other child's centre next door; was a bit ropey when i went but had just opened. all in all, a much mellower experience i've found. oh, free swimming pool too.

i cycled up there a few months back. very nice as you said. there's a driving range at the back of it where you can idle the hours away hitting balls and drinking beerOriginally Posted by Unwell
The Childrens Discovery Museum and playground back behind Jatujak is very nice as well. For the bigger kids a new modern Planetarium is opening up at the Science museum in Pratum Thani.
My kids love to ride on the skytrain and then hop off for the lunch of their choice.
There are not enough places for kids to play, and little to no organized sport. Which is something that I really miss. Sure they swim and wack around a badmitton birdy in front of the house. Bike ride as well. But as a former player and coach of both "soccer" and baseball, Thailand is lacking big time.

The water parks, suan siam or one of the malls, cheap and cheerful, heh you can even get a wedgie too!

Riddle me this brother can you handle it
Your style to my style you can't hold a candle to it
Equinox symmetry and the balance is right
Smokin' and drinkin' on a Tuesday night
It's not how you play the game it's how you win it
I cheat and steal and sin and I'm a cynic
