If you are looking for a quiet place within Nairobi CBD, Jeevanjee might cross your mind. From the few times I have passed by the place, I can't really recommend it.! It it has become noisy with people preaching, the drunk chanting and a number of conmen.

It is a nice place for a short sit down and look around in the middle of the busy city, during daytime.

This is a simple well kept garden donated by Jeevanjee to the city, very popular with the local people, its in the middle of the city so not the best to access. It has a few park benches... not as many as the number of people who come to sit there.

This is located in the city center, very close to Kenya Comfort hotel and other fast food restaurants. It has recently been renovated and have paved walking paths, modern toilets where you pay a small fee to use, and now some very good green gardens. However, note that it may not be very relaxing at around noon since most of... More

Lots of preachers, smokers though you could find a far corner. Cool breeze for hot days and maybe carry packed food/snack

Its one of those places in the city that helps when you are having a walk and you need to catch a breath. With all the trees and the seats, Its totally worth it.

Ideally, this should be the ultimate place to relax during a hot sunny day but not too secure and it is unkempt. Preachers own the place!
