American Embassy Memorial Garden

Gardens in Nairobi

This well-tended walled garden occupies the former site of the American embassy, which was destroyed by terrorist bombings on 7 August 1998. It’s a lovely spot, despite being right between busy Moi and Haile Selassie Aves. A short film describing the horrific events of the attack can also be viewed – ask the security guard if you'd like to see it. There's also free wi-fi.
