Overlooking the Nairobi skyline is one of our most prestigious parks. Through the years it has fallen on some hard times and has lost some of the luster it once claimed. Am optimistic that it will reclaim its position in a few years. A must visit for anyone who wants to watch the city bustle from a far.

We passed by this place on our way to the museum. The gardens are beautiful. It is a good place to rest and just run away from fast life in Nairobi. It is completely free. I would come again and recommend it to a friend

Though the gardens are nothing special and have very little interest for tourist they are a pleasant and relaxing spot in the middle of the city centre. Plenty of family friendly activities (horse rides, camel rides, bouncy castles, boating lake, food stalls, play areas) and a very pleasant and happy atmosphere. Perfect for a picnic (you can buy the usual... More
