“Good - but not better than that...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2012

It was nice to sit there and eat, in the shadow under a tree... and many locals do that aswell! You had a nice view to the city, and there were some activities arranged in the park aswell. but you should be prepared, that as a tourist in central park, you'll get a LOT of attention, and many people staring... didn't bother us too much though; not as much as the ants in the grass, which we didn't notice until after sitting there for 20 minutes... and, watch out - to get there, you'll have to cross the highway. It's usually not a problem, since there is traffic stockings all the time, but make sure to walk together with some locals, otherwise you'll get smashed... driving in africa is interesting!

“I would avoid it”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2011

I do not think that it is worth the time and effort. Plus, my hotel in Nairobi told me to avoid the area at night

“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!
