Public garden planned for Tonle Sap riverbank

There are plans afoot for the eastern site of Preah Sisowath Quay, from Phsar Chas’ garden until Chroy Changvar bridge, to be turned into a public garden. As a result, the Phnom Penh Autonomous Port will relocate to the OCIC area in Chroy Changvar. According to Phnom Penh City Hall spokesperson, Chen Bunthoeun, the plans were envisioned by Prime Minister Hun Sen after his exercise session along the garden in front of the Royal Palace during the beginning of this year. The prime minister wants to see the new garden built before the 2018 national election.
