Quite peaceful and airy and quite vast in size - spanning both sides of Kenyatta Avenue. With a little bit of horticultural attention, sprinklers to keep grass green etc., it could be a haven. Benches need to be renovated/improved with quantities increased. Some security presence could help and would give a better sense of safety to visitors there.

This is the place where declaration of Independence was issued. It's a nice place to have a picnic due to the lushly grassland in the plains. There are a few sculptures also in the site.
