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

Uhuru Gardens are really great .That is the best place to be if you need fresh air and chilly environment with natural grass.

Full of bustle and energy. Stalls, people lolling about, boats on the lake, toilets you can smell before you see, lots of energy and activity. Being opposite parliament it is an important place for announcements to the people of Nairobi and worth experiencing.

The Gardens are lovely and stretch out for kilometres - think Central Park in New York. There are attractions like a small amusement park and local families go to the park on the weekend with their children to enjoy the green spaces.
