ABOUT THE PARK

The AUGUST 7TH MEMORIAL PARK also functions as a Centre of outreach to the public, to educate Kenyans on the appalling consequences of terrorism and violence and the need for peace, tolerance and reconciliation.

The Memorial Park is a tribute to the innocent people who lost their lives as a result of the 1998 bombing, a tribute to the courage of those who have coped with injuries sustained and/or the loss of a loved one and condemnation of terrorism.

The Park makes a statement on the futility of terrorism and that the virtues of humanity will prevail.
