“Uhuru Park Nairobi”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

A short distance walk from the City Centre stands the Uhuru park. The place is memmorable as many government cerebrations and political rallies in Kenyan are done there. The flag of the new costituition in Kenya still stands high. A walk in the park which has many trees coupled with a boat ride can be very refreshing. The park has a good site at the top which allows visitors to see very clearly the whole of Nairobi city.

“Perfect for a nice time”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

Is a peaceful and huge park, where you can go to just chill with a friend, walk or even use one of the boats in the lake.

I believe is great to have one free place for families and people where to spend some time for example on Sundays.

“Okay for families to go during the day”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013

Nice park for families to go during the day. I am not sure how safe it is for Expats but never heard of anyone amongst my friends getting robbed. however would highly recommend that you go there with minimum money in your pocket and dont carry fancy phones or gadgets.

“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.
