You will be happy to go to the Parliament Gardens to spend some hours with your travel companions. The park was originally constructed in the year 1932 and then the name of this park used to be Tintenpalast gardens. In the year 1990, Namibia got its independence and the park was renamed into Parliament Gardens. You can spot three bronze statues in this park of Hosea Kutako, Samuel Witbooi and Theophilus Hamutumbangela, the famous Namibian characters. The park is clean and green with trees such as bougainvilleas and olive. There is also a theatre in the park that presents plays twice a month. At this shady and breezy garden, you will find plenty of zones to sit and relax appropriately.

Parliament Garden Reviews & Ratings
Used to be a nice garden to relax, take photos and let the kids play. Still reasonably well maintained but now barricaded and some plants have died and are not being replaced.
This park in the centre of Windhoek is a famous and beautiful landmark laid out at the steps of parliament. Sadly, the governement no longer allows games, picnics or other activities and the park is now closed for the most part. A real pity.
The Parliament Gardens is a very peaceful and quiet place to sit down, relax and unwind. Unfortunately, it is currently closed to the public due to ongoing renovations. They do make exceptions for photoshoots (e.g. weddings, graduations) but even then, it's on a limited time frame. However, there are multiple tours that make a pit stop at the gardens to explore the history of the different statues that are right in front of the parliament building.
Having a well manicured garden for the public is a wonderful thing. The parliament gardens have patches of awesome serene space and “what the heck is going on” space. There’s even what seems to be a corn farm...umm ok. All in all, it’s a great place to relax and picnic as long as you are in the serene space.
It's a beautiful green place and it is very historical
