    This is to appreciate the good work you are involved in conserving City Park for future generations. I mentor teenagers and i thought it would be nice to get involved with them on one of the clean up exercises you have as volunteers. Please let me know how possible and soon that can be.

    I am a member of ‘ Friends Of Nyamiranga’ in Nyamira County. Nyamiranga is a community hill and we want to conserve its biodiversity. What the best practice we can learn from ‘ Friends if City Park?

      Hi Fred, great to hear of the Friends of Nyamiranga.
      One best practice is to work closely with Govt agencies in your area.
      Keep following our blog to get more ideas too.

    I am a representative of a youth group in environmental conservation in Kenya and we are willing, ready and looking forward to volunteering and helping in protecting the park and we are hoping to host a community drive in the park in the course of next month. Please share with me the right procedure on the same thanks.

      Hi Ivan, City Park originally started as a 90-hectare forest reserve in 1903 and officially launched in 1923, after which it gradually took shape with the addition of recreational features (including the Kei-Apple Maze, planted on the site of a grey-stone quarry) under the Municipal Council. Some of the notable names include H.R. Tate (Nairobi Municipal Committee Chairman, suggested and put up the Band Stand) and Henry Powell (‘Peter’) Greensmith (Park’s Superintendent 1947-1965, designed most of the gardens – some exist to this day)

    Good Morning!!
    I saw your request for volunteers on the back of a Nature Kenya leaflet, but now I cant find it…. I am definitely available to help out.
    Oh, yes, and my Grandmother is buried in the grave yard within the park…. around 1948!
    Keep me in mind if you need help

      What’s the name of the river that’s near the park

    I will be arriving in Nairobi in August this year and would be interested in having an afternoon birdwatching in the City Park.
    We will be staying at Jacaranda Hotel, it may be just myself or maybe another two going.
    Could you please advise me how to get there or if it is possible to hire a guide and if so what will be the cost of a guide and transport.
    We will be leaving on the following morning to go on safari so this will be the only opportunity that I will have

      What’s the name of the river that’s near the park ?

      • Friends07/10/2020 at 1:51 pm #

        It’s called Kibagare River and cuts through the Southern Part of the park. It’s drains into Mathare River which is itself a tributary of the Nairobi River.

    Dear Sirs,

    I really hope you can help me or point me in the right direction. I am currently researching my great grandfather Ralph Granger Brown who I believe is buried in City Park Cemetery. Section 2 Lot 28- please could you give me any information you may have on this burial and let me know if this is an unmarked grave.

    Many thanks,
