Exciting Historical Parks To Visit In Nairobi

Valerie Karuwa Wabungo

Every year, on October 20th, Kenya celebrates Mashujaa Day in honor of the heroes that fought for Kenya’s independence. Following this grand occasion, The Culture Trip profiles some of the best and unforgettable historical parks to visit in Nairobi.

Jeevanjee Gardens

1. Central Park


Central Park, much like all the other parks in Nairobi, is adorned not only with a beautiful landscape but also one of the most historic monuments in Kenya. Built in 1988, this monument celebrates Daniel Arap Moi, the former president of Kenya, and his ten-year rule. It is the first thing that greets you as you enter the park. The park is also fitted with a great playground for children as well as great spots to enjoy the company of others over a picnic basket. There are no entry fees; therefore, it is a wonderful place to visit and explore.
