We visited the park at noon. Hotel concierge had warned us not to take any money, passports, valuables and leave them in the room safe box. We had a fancy feeling of danger with people turning around us... Fancy feeling.

Good for aviation enthusiasts as it is on the flight path to Wislon airport. The air is clean and there is no noise. However, the grass is not really well maintained. Charges are very fair

feel free when relaxing there and ofcourse by seeing the men raising the flag monument, one recalls how Kenya as a country was colonised long time ago but now frreedom is felt.

This park has very poor access of a major highway. Can easily cause an accident into or out of the park. The grass is also sometimes over grown

This small park is the peoples park. Right in the city and easy to get to. It has a couple of great monument- type statues that commemorate the independence of the Kenyan peoples from their colonial overlords.

Since the park was within walking distance of our hotel, I walked there often...but only during the day... More

It a nice place to relax and being close to the city centre it's easy to take a stroll there. When I was there I thought it would benefit from a rubbish collection. But otherwise it's a nice place to go to relax

A nice place to watch the beautiful people of Nairobi. The park is not particularly well maintained, but is easy to walk to from the city centre and has a nice ambiance. There is a small lake you can hire pedal boats from, and at the far end is a small theme park. There are also a scattering of small... More
