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.
