Nyayo Stadium Swimming Pool

Nyayo Stadium has one of the biggest and best swimming pools in Nairobi. The olympic size pool measures 50 metres by 25 metres and it was a well-maintained pavillion where swimmers and non-swimmers can relax.

In total, this pavillion can hold as many 2,000 spectators.

One of the best things about Nyayo Swimming Pool is that the waters are well treated. I believe this is one of the cleanest swimming pool in Nairobi West.

Another good about Nyayo Stadium Swimming Pool is that it has lifeguards on every corner of the pool and it is very affordable. Below are the swimming charges at Nyayo Stadium.
