The garden began as a home to some Nubians who were engaged in agriculture by planting green fodder in it on two single legs, then Lord Kitchener who owned Kitchener's Island took it as its headquarters and was a military base during the English occupation and after the end of the occupation, it turned into a public park and was called a botanical garden.
