“Sad memories”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2013

I walked to the memorial garden from the intercontinental - easy walk. The memorial garden is small, with many people sitting around or sleeping in the garden. The garden honours those who lost their lives; a worthwhile visit, especially when one considers how Kenya has moved on from so many tragedies.

“Surprisingly touching and beautifully done”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2013

Sad to say we did not clearly remember this tragic event. The Kenyans have done a beautiful job with creating this loving memorial who everyone who died or were hurt in this terrorist attack. By far the most touching (not a dry eye in the house) is the 50 minute film (which felt like about 15 minutes). It is a remarkable film about a horrific experience. We highly recommend to everyone but esp. to Americans.

“Worth a stop”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2013

This pretty little garden and reserved memorial was very pleasant to visit and gave a nice spot to be calm and reflect on this tragic event. There were a few people enjoying the serenity and sipping on a coffee or cool bottle of water. It cost a couple a couple of dollars but was a nice little place to take a break and chill out whilst on a walk through the city.

“Pleasant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

It cost a couple of EURO to visit. It turned out to be a quiet oasis even though it is situated on the corner of a busy intersection. An informal atmosphere and a good place to meet Nairobeans.
