Meanwhile 25 years ago the bombing of the US embassies in Kenya and Tanzania feels like a long time ago. The attackers left a clear message: anybody working for the Americans be it as a cleaner, office worker or guard is a target. Horrible for the victims. I missed perspective: broadening targets in a conflict to include civilians is not just the policy of militants, but also of governments.

While I didn't spend too much time here, I stumbled into the area while wandering around the city. The park itself is beautiful and shows a brief history of what happened that fateful day. May want to double check before you go, they may have been at least temporarily closed when we were there, hence the photos from the outside gate.

The memorial park is well maintained and holds the history of the terrorist attack that happened. Lots of people opt to visit the place to rest, meditate and have meetings, though sometimes it can be very crowded

It's a quite interesting place, you learn all there is to know about the terrorist attack on the US ambassy. However, there is not much to see and it's maybe a bit expensive for what it is.

I had visited this park as part of a walking tour through Nairobi. It was a nice break from the hectic city. The park was small but it was well done as a memorial to the tragic bombing of the American embassy in 1998. There is a wall with the names of over 200 victims of the bombing. A sculpture made from the debris of the explosion is also on display.

Despite its sad past, its a beautiful place to visit both in memory of the victims of the bomb blast and even for one to relax and unwind.

If you could only visit one site in Kenya, this is it. A museum, a memorial park, a memorial wall and the quiet. The mission statement says 'a place where the public would be educated about the futility of violence and the essence of peace.' They have indeed hit the nail on the head. Being an American and a frequent visitor to Kenya, this park speaks to me. Violence and evil came to this place, yet it stirs me to remember and reflect on all that is good. As we were leaving, a group of school girls in a Bible study began singing 'He is my shelter in the time of storm.'

We visited the place just our short tour to Nairobi the Kenya Capital with Ancient Wild Safaris the place is just after the Kenyatta International Convention Center the view point, there At the Memorial park there is so much movies and stories telling how the American Embassy was attached, this reminded us of being well alert and need for peace in our continents.
Once you are in Kenya and have short time of traveling look for a guide and ask them to offer you the city tour excursions which you can only do by walking since the city is always full of traffic. We did enjoyed more with Ancient Wild safaris. We shall do it again and again when have time. Best.
