“Nairobi Arboretum- Hello Nature”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2014

It is a very well maintained area very close to President's home (which is a major reason its well maintained I think). Its got a lot of greenery and has tracks made for runners. I go there for running with my friends and especially for cross country running training it makes a good track. Otherwise also, its a nice place to go with kids in the evening.

When you need some peace and tranquility away from the big bad city,
this is the place! Bring a picnic basket, ipod and ipod dock
and get ready to have yourself a great time.

“Great place to escape the city”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2013

One of the few places in Nairobi where you can escape the noise and pollution of the city. Fantastic for walking, jogging or just enjoying nature. Great place to enjoy a picnic.

“Lovely Scenery”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2013

With people praying in the background, kids playing and screaming. Its a great spot to just walk around and take in the uniqueness that this place offers.
Bridal groups and school children roaming about. :). One of a kind

“Good park too dirty”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013

There are few places to go inside the city where you can walk, run and lay on the grass. Arboretum park is one of them. I went there with my wife on a Sunday morning and we took a lovely walk around it. It was full of people, I guess it is a meeting place where Kenyans go to pray or to meet others people. There are huge trees and lot of flowers but it was absolutely dirty. It may be cleaner on Mondays, but on weekends is very dirty.
