But as much as I like parks, Thailand is just to hot to walk around in them most of the year...
I have no issue walking forever in Bangkok during the day
As long as I am in athletic/workout gear then I don't mind the heat and sweating

It's at night if it's too humid and I am dressed nice to go out that I don't like it

But during the day I don't mind at all

I was going to write that not if in the 40 C range
That's unbearable

But say 35 C is still very hot but can manage

40 C no way

Going off-topic now, but day before yesterday we stayed in your wive's moo ban..
Really enjoyed the bar / entertainment center we spent the nigh, "Loft in Love", food, live music, drinks..
But more than that, the best service person I have ever met in Thailand, Tom lady (or should I say boy?) who not only asked how we liked our drinks, but informed her (his?) colleagues to serve likewise, asked for our requests for music, which she then passed on to the band, just dug in her apron when asked about "mai thim fan"(toothpick) ..
Service as it should be, never there when you don't need, always there when you do, and always one step ahead of your desires (does that sound sexual? if so, not like that..).

The hotel we stayed at (showed up on Google maps, not on Booking.com) was a that different.. great room service, very fast. Private parking right in front of the room, so that's all good..
But no windows in the room, 2 porn channels on the TV though..
The question whether we wanted to pay for 3 hours or for 6 hours was a hint, but they didn't mind if we stayed all night... 555

There is a lot of good places that have opened up around there in the last 4-5 years, especially the last 2-3 years
Almost Western style places but Thai

Also some nice little boutique hotels have opened up as well

Many of the Bangkok parks that I have visited have plenty of shaded areas, large trees etc to escape from the bright sunlight. They are very peaceful places to relax and it amazes me how the sounds of one of the worlds busiest cities just disappear into total silence after entering these parks.

Early morning just after sunrise... and evening just before sunset.. parks are quite pleasant.. especially in Dec/Jan.

Benjakiti Park is a nice convenient place to get away from the hustle of Sukhumvit. Was quite nice just sitting on the benches next to the water.
I’ve got a few hours spare this morning so I am going to Benjakiti park for a stroll around. I hope there is some shaded areas there.

It is a great place to walk around and relax. I did a leisurely walk about and an hour flew buy. It was hot yet many people where running a couple of laps of Benjakiti park. It is well worth a visit and a stones throw from Asoke BTS.
