The Pattaya Park holiday resort and water park are old and rundown and it doesn't look like there has been much maintenance for many years. But the real problem is that management allow packs of stray dogs to roam around. There dogs are often large and dangerous as they are very territorial and will defend their territory against you.
Many tourists have been bitten and had to undergo 15 days of often painful anti-rabies treatment costing about 20,000 baht at local hospitals. There are over 3 million stray dogs in Thailand and almost a million are estimated to have rabies which is fatal to humans if not treated quickly.
If you're going out in Pattaya Park always carry a large stick with you to protect yourself and your family. The danger is especially bad after dark. I imagine that Pattaya Park management won't take any action till a tourist or child is killed by one of the packs of stray dogs in the park.
I have spoken to the manager about the problem but he refuses to take any action
