Uhuru gardens offer an open place, especially for children to play, the security is high, with one manned entry point and armed security personnel keeping watch. It is a popular venue for events so its prudent to find out its availability before visiting.

I spend about an hour riding the paddle boat and just walking around the park. There’s not much to do there . Great for picnicking .

The park/gardens are nice and busy over the weekend .. I just wished people would keep it clean and not throw their trash everywhere.

Great place to chill with kids on a Sunday afternoon but the problem is it gets really packed we stayed just for 20mins to experience local picnic vibes.

We did not really enjoy our visit here as there's really not much to see or do and it is just the memorial in the small park that is of any interest and even that is kind of lacking.

I can't say that I was terribly impressed with this park. It suffers from poor management. It's also rather ordinary. I will say that it's a great place for bird watching. I saw no less than 4 new species. I do recommend it for that....More

This place reminded me of famed NY Central Park. No statues, but also body of water with skyscrapers in the background and people lying on the grass. Main differences - loud preacher preaching to resting people (couldn't understand a word but very convincing!), it's no...More

Nice views of the City of Nairobi and the city parks. A good spot to buy your last minute curios and some nice wrap around kangas.

It is open to the public and anyone who is visiting Nairob's CBD can easily walk to the park.It is also a good place during Weekends since lots of local people spare time there, and is a niceexperience to be engaged in the local culture.

Its a big park close to CBD. It comes to life on weekends with kids and families. There is a self peddling boat ride on a small pond located in the park. There are several rides and inflatable slides available for kids

Yes, when you reaches Nairobi, heck with local tourist assistance OR Bus company to find out, this is a vague question which can not be answered by a visitor, after passing time, things changes fast, there is nothing free... More
