“Nice place, this one”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 15, 2012

This is popular with the locals for picnics. Entry is free for locals, a small fee if a car is used, a small tuck shop at the gate. you can bring your own food and drink. Very relaxed atmosphere. A fee is charged for large (unorganized) groups and also for organized groups.

Toilets were a little dirty, but are currently being renovated.

“Not overly exciting”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 22, 2012

Good for a run around? Not sure what the attraction would be other than a nice green space to chillax in.

“A green refuge mid-city”
3 of 5 bubbles 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 bubbles 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
