“Getting better with time”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2011

With the new plans they have for the park I would definitely go back once done. Its a really nice place for picnics and games and launches but weddings are a definite no with planes landing on willson airport next door the noice bad for video coverage of the event but there security is great. They do a good jobdont venture if quietness is what you are looking for in a Park. The picture here to my left looks more like uhuru park than the uhuru gardens am talking about though.

“Poor Access and over grown Grass”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2011

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

“Go see the Freedom Statue”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2011

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.

“A Haven in Nairobi”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2011

This was a lovely park in Nairobi (Uhuru means Freedom in Kiswahili) used like any 'Central Park' type area in every big city i the world...families having picnics, businessmen napping midday in the shade, and people walking and enjoying a beautiful day! Since the park was within walking distance of our hotel, I walked there often...but only during the day light hours!

“Within easy walking distance of the city centre”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2011

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
