A nice place to relax in the busy city of Nairobi. Surrounded by a few historical monuments and enough shade thanks to the work and vision of Nobel peace prize winner Wangari Maathai

A place that the Nairobians frequent, it is at the edge of the CBD's confines bordering some of the urban areas of Nairobi. Though an open area, caution is recommended. There are pickpockets lurking in every corner. That being said, the view from the Uhuru park is quite nice. In the evenings, or early morning, you can walk up to... More

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.
