While I didn't spend too much time here, I stumbled into the area while wandering around the city. The park itself is beautiful and shows a brief history of what happened that fateful day. May want to double check before you go, they may have been at least temporarily closed when we were there, hence the photos from the outside gate.

The actual size is quite small, but the monument is done tastefully. There is a 50 ksl fee to enter this well maintained park. With another fee to enter the museum of 150 ksl. I feel that it was worth my time.

Meanwhile 25 years ago the bombing of the US embassies in Kenya and Tanzania feels like a long time ago. The attackers left a clear message: anybody working for the Americans be it as a cleaner, office worker or guard is a target. Horrible for the victims. I missed perspective: broadening targets in a conflict to include civilians is not just the policy of militants, but also of governments.

The memorial park is well maintained and holds the history of the terrorist attack that happened. Lots of people opt to visit the place to rest, meditate and have meetings, though sometimes it can be very crowded

This place is a honor of the 1998 US embassy bombing in Nairobi, Kenya. It is a place to offer tribute to the loss of people from many countries who lost their lives serving in the great cooperative house, American embassy, and even the citizens, visitors and many others. The place is accessible during the day, convenient. It feels good to honor the innocent lives lost in the tragic occurrence!

The number of names of victims of the bombing engraved on the memorial wall is stunning and saddening, but the nearby museum exhibits tell not only the tale of tragedy but also stories of survivors and rescuers, and memorable quotes notable visitors to this urban oasis and place of remembrance.

This was build in memory of 1998 August terrorist attack to the American Embassy in Nairobi. It has very nice garden , a small conference facility and snacks. There is a small entry fee. Good for small meetings and for those who need a quite moment alone in the busy city. The names of all the people who died in the incident are written in there.

Never heard of August the 7th. Imagine how impressed we were getting to know our history by visiting a park of remembrance as this! Beautiful, quiet, respectful, all leading towards some remembrance stones, a bar and a wonderful museum of what happened there that day (Nairobi under attack) -containing a very concrete movie about the whole subject as well-.
