This park is located on Independence Avenue and it is close to the Zoo. Walking distance to the hill leading to the Main attraction of the city (Christuskirche).

They were making some maintenance works when we were there but also if it had been finished: it’s rather a park to walk through than to stay for a picnic.

One can see this use to be a stunning park however it has not been up kept but that might just be because of lack water. You not missing anything if you don't visit

The park is in Windhoek and has a small restaurant that offers good food and a lovely vibe. The park itself can be crowded and offers shade and areas to sit and relax

The park is a bit small and crowded especially at lunchtime but is still a great a great place to chill, for meeting people and to just sit around and relax from your busy day.

While it appears a bit shabby, the park seems to be having sidewalks upgraded. If the city continues, it will be a lovely place. The highlight is the German War Memorial.

Needed to take some time off to consider odd key issues. Decided to take a walk and strolled through the Park. Was pleasantly surprised and enjoyed the time.

Terrrrrrible experience at the cafe in the park. I ordered seafood pasta and my partner ordered scrambled egg and sausage. The waitress brought me a completely different dish and claimed that it was what I ordered but I had never even heard of the words...More

Don't make a special trip to see this, but if in centre of town you could check to see if the make over has been completed yet! Some very old bones had been discovered here but now all relocated to Museum. No where very nice...More
