When I last walked through the park, coming from the Serena and due to traffic opting to walk to the KICC rather than take a cab, if found plenty of litter strewn on the grass and little sign of regular maintenance. It does however offer a great view over the skyline of the CBD from the hill above the main... More

This is one of the places that you can just walk into and have rest in Nairobi. The atmosphere is good,you can take very nice photos at the place because of its green nature and natural beauty. You can take a nap peacefully without any interference. t is a very nice place to be with a family or friends.

This is one of the few places in Nairobi that you can have peace of mind and fresh air while in the sun and you don't have to pay a cent. You also get a beautiful view. However, during the hot season, you should sit in the shade as it gets super hot.

Great experience for a European, especially on Saturday and Sunday. Nairobi's will be there en mass with their kids and everybody has a good time. Walk around and enjoy the crowds.

The eyesore in this photo cost a fortune and is falling apart. It should be removed and replaced by an acacia tree. This "think" represents the corruption that continues to ruin this beautiful country.

Nearby Uhuru Park has attractions, a boating lake and camel rides and families go there on a Sunday afternoon, however Central Park has little to offer it to visitors. It is mainly frequented by alcoholics, and if you stop in the park... More

Easily to reach when u are in the center of Nairobi . Here u can escape the hectic of the town. The grass is worn, the paths are difficult for handicapped people. A lot of dirt around . But there are many many benches to sit on. Nearly every corner is offering drinks and food. The trees providing shadow and... More

There are many citizens sleeping on the grass. The park is not for activities , but if you want to spend time doing nothing you can go there
