Approximately 237 rai (379,200 sq. meters) of the Sisa ket Agricultural College was used for the park which is a natural forest area and the only forest in Thailand that has a dense concentration of Lamduan flowers, giving the forest a pleasant aroma from February to April.

Thus, the Lamduan flower is regarded as the provincial flower if Sisaket.
