Information

The Nong Prachak is located in Mak Khaeng, in the Udon Thani province.This giant pond has existed before the establishment of Udon Thani town. It was formerly called “Nong Na Klue” (pond of salty water) and later changed to “Nong Prachak” in honor of Major General HRH Prince Prachaksinlapakhom, the founder of Udon Thani town. In 1987, the pond was improved as a royal tribute to King Rama IX on the occasion of his 50th birthday anniversary. On an island in the pond, a small garden is filled with decorative and flowering plants, and there is a bridge linking the island with the mainland. The park has a fountain, a clock tower, and a playground.
