After several years with the gates locked due to a contract dispute, Chiang Mai residents were allowed to use the Railway Park in early 2010 and to mark World Environment Day community tree planting was organised for 4th June that year.

Most of the planting was concentrated at the northern end of the park and on both sides of a black water drain there. Trees on the northern side of the drain were twice destroyed by an ill considered dredging of the drain and then finally for a new high wall separating the park from the palace grounds on the Irrigation Department land.

The photos here show some excellent growth and alas dead stags which pose a deadly health hazard to park workers and visitors alike.
