It is a small, peaceful park in the busy Victory Monument area. It has well manicured lawns with some interesting small statues. Good for jogging, for relaxing, for killing time, it is a good escape from the hustle and bustle of the area it is in.
We got there accidentally while checking the eateries along Soi Rang Nam. How we were told later, its name means "peace".

How to get there: We took the BTS Skytrain to the Victory Monument stop and exited side 1. Walk down Phayathai Road (toward BTS Phaya Thai stop) and turn left onto Rangnam Road. You'll pass the King Power complex on your right. Just a block further, you'll run into Suan Santiphab Park on your left. If you don’t know how to use the BTS, google “How to use the BTS skytrain in Bangkok with map route and station details.”

There’s a spirit house, statues and a garden to see. This is a popular place for jogging.
Another feature is an elaborate fountain. It wasn’t flowing the day we were there, but the operations looked pretty spectacular.

Santiphab means peace. Installed in the pond, the park symbol is a pigeon holding 5 olive branches representing world peace. It's made of black bronze and is an imitation of Picasso's work.

The park is open daily from 5am until 9pm.

The park remains open most of the time. With fountains and orchids, it had some nice landscaping. The playground was very much enjoyed by the kids.

This lovely park is located exactly midway between the Victory monument and Hara Chair.
There's a lovely pond and fountain in the middle of the park and several tranquil paths to walk and enjoy the serene nature of the park, so detached from the hectic streets of Bangkok.

I've been here several times, alone and with friends. It's located under the cross-hairs at the centre of the map linked to below (GPS coordinates in the URL, change to satellite view, or zoom in, with the features of the map):

Located on the north side of Thanon (often called Soi) Rangnam, a great local eating street, which also has the King Power Pullman hotel (mediocre value whose construction somewhat damaged the integrity of the neighbourhood, IMHO) and the Royal View Resort (very good value, IMHO and immediately adjacent to the west side of the park).

As the previous reviewer noted, there are aerobics sessions in the park (as in almost all Bangkok parks). As a late person, I can't get up for the early ones, but the ones at 6 PM are enjoyable to watch or participate in. To me, the evenings, between about 6 and 8 PM, are best times for visiting a park like this. Relatively cool, and active with locals enjoying it. Walk or jog around the park, bring kids to the playground. Or just get some fresh fruit from a street vendor, get a drink from a nearby 7-11, sit and read a book - while watching residents revel in their parks. The Wikipedia article below gives some more information:

If you're in the area in the evening, consider having dinner in one of the restaurants along Soi Rangnam. The Saxophone Pub in the SE corner of Victory Monument square, is also a good place to eat, drink, and enjoy local live jazz.
