Little is being done on the upkeep of this park. There are more weeds than grass. Some garbage along the walk paths. No worth a person time.

Passed by this park many times as it is at the far northern end of Moi avenue where the Central Business District ends and you can continue to Westlands.

There are always many people hanging out (especially men), which means it is probably one of the most used public parks in the city. Basically everyone can walk in and out, as there are no guards, entrance fees or other obstacles. In short a real public space as businessman Jeevanjee had wanted it to be.

However, the park is in poor shape and not well maintained. I did not see any garbage around and there are functional benches to sit (most seats are taken). Even though as a white person you stand out, I did not feel unsafe. Jeevanjee's statue wasn't there any more.

At some points men gather to listen to a preacher?

There is nothing attractive about these gardens. They are just a dreary, dusty and dirty small park in the inner city. Lots of people just hanging out, or sleeping rough. Definitely no tourist attraction.

I had heard of the Jeevanjee Gardens before but had never taken the time to locate it. I always knew it is right inside the city towards the end of Moi Avenue. I had passed there severally, but had never noticed it. Then one evening, weeks ago, here I am rushing to pick an item I bought online. I find myself crossing this little garden, where people sit. It had rained the night before, so it is quite wet.

There is nothing worth mentioning here except the garden is in the city center and is a cool place you can rest on a hot day.
There is a metal statue of Mr. Jeevanjee, the colonial-era Indian after whom the garden is named. I don't know what he did to deserve this piece of land after his name. I don't want want to Google either. Let it be.

A very good place for relaxing during lunch hour. There are so many people found at the Jevanjee garden just seated chatting to one another. There are also some preaching to small crowds.

If you want to be robbed, mugged, and more just spend 30 minutes in Jeevanjee, as from 18:00. I dont think you will survive an hours if you are too fancy before you are kidbapped, drugged and more.
Just show off anything seen as worth money. Mobile phones, rings, I sat completely at the entrance (completely covered and watched, snatch thieves, street urchins, glue sniffers, Miraa chewers, Wah. Shivers. You dont want to be there,

This park is lovely to visit in the daytime but dangerous in the late evening and night due to criminals. It has lots of sitting spots and shade of trees for the sunny days. During the day there can be many preachers so at times it is not the best meditation spot. I love it though.

This is one place that reminds us one person's actions can make a difference when you learn its history. However it is a place to be careful due to the presence of petty thiefs.

PS: There is a smoking zone there
