This is just a lovely park in the middle of the town. However surrounded by busy roads. It is a nice park to walk around for a while and to enjoy the sunshine. Nice but nothing really special.

There are many photo ops for budding photographers. The flora and fauna were absolutely beautiful when we went.

This is a great spot for a great sit down picnic. It is less noisy on the weekdays. They still have boat rides on the weekend. Be careful of pick pockets. Better to go in a large group of friends then alone.

This park seemed to be a safe place to rest right in the city. Walk through the park and you are in the busy business district of Nairobi with plenty of cafes, restaurants and coffee shops.

wow! a park within the bustling city is really amazing!!!! it was clean, people are so disciplined with garbage and stuff...the view deck provides a good sight of the city.when it's traffic time, you can sit and there are vendor stalls around to buy something.

Uhuru park is a great chill out spot when you are in the CBD and in need for a chill pill or just having a casual meet with a friend.It is advisable to go there on non-holidays or weekends due to the high number of people that frequent the park during these days.The fresh air in that part of town...

My wife and I stayed at the Fairview Hotel and decided to go for a walk. We went to this park which was about a 5-10min walk from the hotel. The walk was safe with no issues. The park itself is relatively large. There is plenty of walking space with vendors situated throughout. There was a great area where vendors... More

As we were staying at the Fairview hotel only 15min walk away we decided to go see the park. Busy lunch hour on a Monday before the kids go back to school so mostly professional people on lunch break & I imagine unemployed people. None of the carnival rides were operational but the pedal boats for rent (300KES for 30mins)... More

Just across the Central Business District. Good for morning walk and jog. Avoid the weekends its very popular with locals, so it will be very very crowded. If you can make it early morning, it will be good. Large green space with walking path. Has an artificial lake with boating facility.

Viewed it from the road. Overgrown grass, no visitors in sight. Looked unfriendly so I gave it a pass.
