“Excellent for a jog”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

Always love my jogging moments at the Arboretum. Fresh air,great trails, safe and refreshing! The only downside is when it rains.. down at the river,there's a lot of trash washed up from upstream(blame fellow humans) mainly plastic bags which is a sad sight. Otherwise with the regular patrols by the KFS team,one feels safe even whilst jogging alone in the forest. Long live the Arboretum!

It is a great place to picnic, rest or take a walk. Also advisable to come with a friend or a group of friends to enjoy the beauty, peace and tranquility away from the city.. Well at least your mind will make you think so heheh

“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,
