Nairobi residents now have a place to relax, picnic and take leisurely walks after the  Michuki Memorial Park was officially opened to the public.

The Kenya Forest Service took over its management to ensure drug users, street children and idlers do not bother residents and visitors out to relax, walk and picnic at the facility.

The park is named after the no-nonsense Kibaki administration Environment minister John Michuki.

The park was established in 2012 and is situated along Nairobi River between the Globe Cinema roundabout and the far end of Uhuru Highway.

It is in the neighbourhood of Kijabe Street, Kipande Street, the National Museums of Kenya, Hotel Boulevard, Nairobi University’s School of Diplomacy and the Norfolk Apartments.

Michuki, now deceased, won admiration and accolades for his enthusiasm and determination to clean and preserve the environment.

The park was neglected soon after he was moved from the environment docket.

Below are photos of the park, we must admit it’s breathtaking.
