A large open space in the CBD. You see many people walking, tossing the frisbee etc. however, facilities can be improved tremendously. Appears to be frequented only by Kenyans and not foriegnors

The recreational amenities here should be improved to attract more visitors in this place. The maintenance of the monument commemorating our first president the late, Mzee Jomo Kenyatta has been neglected. However, the management of grasslands, woody plants, climbing and wall plants, and other surfaces has been fairly done. All in all, Central Park is a prestigious gain to urban... More

Just look at the photos. Rusty barbed wire everywhere. Dirty water and filth around the broken fountain. Shameful.

Uhuru Park in Nairobi, Kenya, is a beautiful area that flows from the Upper Hill area to downtown. It offers, at its summit, a lovely view of the city, while in its embrace you can slumber, visit, walk the paths or enjoy the flowers and wildlife. Central to the park is a lake small enough to walk around and big... More

A very nice place for a walk or picnic, on weekdays there are lots of activities. Be aware that the small shops charge a lot for snacks if your a tourist

The day I was there people were doing what people do in parks all over the world -- picnicking, tossing around Frisbees, relaxing. There were also a number of groups of people singing. I applauded at the end of one of the group's songs and they asked me to join them. I didn't but was touched by the offer.

Very popular with locals visiting here on weekends and weekdays. Dont be surprised to see people seated on the grass just by themselves meditating or couples here and there. Nothing much to see just to seat and enjoy nature
