“Great escape from the city”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2013

It is a haven in the bustle of Nairobi and a nice place to get away from the traffic and smog. Unfortunately, you'll find trash littering the park at times and the trails can get messy during the rainy season.

“Yes its full of trees”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013

If you want a walk away from the hustle and bussle then this place is for you.
You will find it full of couples (which sometimes can be very unhappy if you want to share an area) we did see a coupe of church groups holding small masses here, (if thats your thing enjoy)

“Nairobi Aboretum”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

This is a wonderful place for a morning or evening work . Groups and families also use it as a picnic site owing to the peaceful environment and clean air. nature lovers also visit the Aboretum to learn about trees and appreciate the conservation work in the only forested part near the city centre of Nairobi.

“Beautiful pocket of green in a busy city”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

While the facilities could do with a lot of TLC (especially the toilets!!!), the feel of the place is very peaceful, relaxing and serene, which is wonderful for being so close to the heart of Nairobi. There is no entry fee, and it attract all kinds of people, which makes it an interesting place to see a slice of Nairobi's culture. Lots of religious groups and prayer meetings, team-building exercises and other groups. But lots of quiet corners for a picnic too or stroll away from the action. We live in Nairobi and go there regularly!
