Day Out At John Michuki Memorial Park

Sometime back I wrote about one of my favourite green space in Nairobi the little known Nairobi Botanical Garden located in the same compound as Nairobi National museum.


It was a simple write up celebrating this amazing garden not knowing that later on I will write of it’s neighbouring green space today know as John Michuki Memorial Park.

As the names suggest, this is a park approximately 10.4 ha bearing the name of the late Environment Minister Hon. John Michuki, established in 2008 at a site previously used as dumpsite and a criminal hideout which came about as a result of the rehabilitation and restoration of the Nairobi River.

I was told during my first visit that there are over 88 assorted tree species in the park and my best part of this park is the 500 sitter amphitheater made naturaly using glass as the cushion for seating area to the beautiful green tree cover that makes it the best place for nature walks, best place to relax reading a book or enjoying a picnic

The best park you can make a whole day at this park when you combine a visit to the National museum walk down to the umani gardens that’s part of the Nairobi Botanical garden and end your day at the Michuki Memorial Park.

On my visit I had friends joining me for a visit to the museum which I would highly recommend if you last visited it in your highschool as it has been renovated and expanded.

After our visit to the museum we walked into the botanical garden that is now connected with the Michuki Memorial Park where our picnic was made up of delicious cupcakes made by Cugari Delights check them out and try them I would recommend the chocolate cupcakes that I still enjoy in memories and orders I have made.

With this festive seasons and you don’t have a plan don’t stay indoor, grab your mask and head to the museum and later visit the Michuki memorial Park your day will be great. Are you looking for a place to take him or her out? You have the best plan as I shared above .

keep safe and enjoy the Festivities
