From Nairobi City Centre, you can – on Tom Mboya Street – board either a Route 11 matatu (minibus) outside the Odeon Cinema, or a Route 106 matatu leaving from the Nairobi Fire Station. From either, you can then alight on Limuru Road, beside the Aga Khan Hospital, just before the Hawkers’Market. The entrance to City Park, across the road from the hospital, is clearly signposted.
From Limuru Road BY CAR and ON FOOT
From Limuru Road drive or walk about 150 m to reach the Park’s administrative offices where a plant nursery is also located. A loop road on the right encircles the offices and leads to the Central lawns.
Parking is available opposite the nurseries and offices and next to the Bowling Green Restaurant further down the main drive.
City Park is a public park and accessible to all. Therefore all caution is recommended. Do not take valuables to the park and don’t go to remote areas alone. If parking next to the Bowling Green Restaurant we recommend leaving your car in the care of one of the guards.
There are two sets of public toilets in City Park, and both are in good working order. One set is located behind the City Council of Nairobi
administrative office, where users are charged a nominal fee (of KSh 10) as a contribution towards upkeep and servicing. The other public
toilets are near the Park entrance on Limuru Road.
First-time visitors, or visitors who are unaccompanied, might wish to engage the services of a guide. Knowledgeable guides can be hired on request and for a modest fee, through the office of the Friends of City Park, providing that adequate prior notice is given.
