The August 7th Memorial Park

The August 7th Memorial Park 1

Situated at the intersection of Moi Avenue & Haile Selassie Avenue, the August 7th Memorial Gardens is a peaceful, green gem in the middle of a chaotic city. The memorial gardens were opened on 7 August 2001 in the remembrance of the August 7th, 1998 terrorist attack that rocked & shaked Nairobi. After the attack, the remainder of the buildings had to be demolished and now features a museum that documents what happened on the day and some rather harrowing photographs, a granite wall with a plaque of the names of all those who died and a statue made up from debris collected after the attack.
