Developed and donated by Alibhai Mullah Jeevanjee to the Nairobi residents in 1906, this small slice of heaven is situated in the heart of the Nairobi CBD. The park has been faced with a lot of trials and tribulations, including its possible extinction by the Nairobi City Council; however, the persistent and, fortunately, convincing objections by Jeevanjee’s granddaughter Zarina Patel and the Wangari Maathai Green Belt Movement have shelved such proposals.
Truly a treasure enjoyed by all, the garden consists of buoyant tree coverage that provides the perfect shade from the scorching Kenyan sun. It is also dotted with artistic benches and authentic sculptures that invites both young and old to relax in all its splendor. The park is free to the public and is seldom empty.
