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.

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.

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
