The memorial park is well maintained and holds the history of the terrorist attack that happened. Lots of people opt to visit the place to rest, meditate and have meetings, though sometimes it can be very crowded

It's a quite interesting place, you learn all there is to know about the terrorist attack on the US ambassy. However, there is not much to see and it's maybe a bit expensive for what it is.

If you could only visit one site in Kenya, this is it. A museum, a memorial park, a memorial wall and the quiet. The mission statement says 'a place where the public would be educated about the futility of violence and the essence of peace.'...More

Unlike the Jeevanjee gardens this park is calm and quite. You pay 20 cents at the entrance for park maintenance but it's worth it. The other good thing about this place is that it's located in a very secure and convenient place.
