It was set up after the August 7th bomb blast in Nairobi. It used to house the American Embassy in Nairobi. Its a place to think and reflect on the importance of peace and co-existence. Visitors can view a shot video in regards to how this happened, presentation from the resident expert and general Park view and photography. The Park also runs a small conference center that can have up to 100 people per seating.

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.
