“Beautiful Walk”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2014

Is a lovely place for a walk and lots of colours. Worth a visit between Safari trips. Families may not enjoy as much

“Beautiful! ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2014

We went for the first ever Reggae in the Park festival. Sigh. The air is fresh and clean, cool temperatures; you might wanna carry a scarf or a sweater if you're planning to stay till evening. Great for picnics!

“Nature ”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2014

It's a nice nature area. Good for a walk with friends, as single or with kids. Make Nature for kids to a lesson in this Park. Show them the beautiness of the Arboretum with all the plants and trees.

“Lovely park for a walk or picnic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2014

Trees are labelled in this lovely arboretum, which showcases both native and planted species. Heavily used on weekend afternoons. The trail around the outer edge takes about 40 minutes.

“Perfect for a several hours outing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2014

It is an oasis of tranquility not far from centre. Great place for a jog, feels safe, parking space is ample, There is no fee, but if you want to take a camera in, you pay 1000 KES, you get a receipt. There are tables for picnic, trees are labelled, there are toilets, I do not know the condition they are in, There is some food available at the parking, but it is not a real restaurant. All sorts of physical activities are organised, particularly for kids.
