If u get time on busy days for few hrs in nairobi, visit this peaceful park.

On sundays u can also see some street skaters practising and showing their skills.

“Get the real history of Kenya”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013

Uhuru means freedom in Kiswahili. So visiting the "freedom gardens" takes you back to the colonial days. Rich history but nothing much in the park ,,may be just to relax and cool off.

“ok but disappointing”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

We expected a basic urban park, but this is no showcase for the nation, as its name and location imply. A magnet for drunks and homeless, very badly maintained-- my wife insisted on leaving after a quick look around. We enjoyed the bustling family "scene" with lots of happy kids. A good respite from the city if you have nowhere else to go, but surrounded by gleaming buildings that makes you wonder where the city money is spent... not here!

“ok”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2012

Nice and open. Very relaxing. One should sleep with one eye open, or if not, wake up with one shoe stolen.
