“A green refuge mid-city”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2012

Thousands of Nairobians spend their lunch hour enjoying the green sward that is Uhuru Gardens. It's really a fairly average city park, but it's a nice resting place if you're downtown and need some quiet.

“Nice place to walk - away from auto fumes”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2012

walking along the road is really not that pleasant - auto exhaust fumes are pretty bad - walk in the park is a nice break

“Nice but unsecure”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2012

We visited the park at noon.
Hotel concierge had warned us not to take any money, passports, valuables and leave them in the room safe box.
We had a fancy feeling of danger with people turning around us...
Fancy feeling.

“Great environment at the Uhuru memorial gardens”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2012

Good for aviation enthusiasts as it is on the flight path to Wislon airport. The air is clean and there is no noise. However, the grass is not really well maintained. Charges are very fair
