“Nice place to hang around but nothing much to do”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013

Nice place to hang around but nothing much to do. Its a great track to walk and play but that's it. There is nothing extra inside.

“So many trees!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

As a natural history lover, I appreciated the interpretive signs and the large number of identification plaques on the trees. Lots of little trails and broad paths run through the park, making it perfect for running or walking. The roads leading into it are also have sidewalks, so it's a perfect jogging destination.

“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.
