Amidst the pandemic, Bangkok opened its remarkable public space, the Chao Phraya Sky Park (CPSP). Left abandoned for 40 years, the halted infrastructure has been transformed as the first park across the river in any capital. Merging two existing parks on both ends, CPSP shows the importance of much-need public green space, walkability, low impact construction from adaptive reuse while restoring its citizens' physical and mental health. CPSP has shown the countless future possibilities for placemaking that increase urban adaptability and the city's abandons that should not be left behind.
