“The Park of the sleeping locals!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2011

Central Park is literally across the road from the more widely known Uhuru Park, but has a completely different feel about it. Where Uhuru was busy and exciting, Central Park was more relaxed and serene. Typified by the locals, who lie sleeping or snoozing on the grass, Central Park seems for a place to relax and take in the surroundings.
There is a small childs playground at the northern end, and a few small stalls selling food and drink, but for the most part, you would visit Central Park to chill and relax, not for the entertainment it offers.
So perhaps you could have some fun over at Uluru Park, and then come to Central Park to sleep it off!
