The best place to absorb the fullness of nature just behind the hustle and bustle of the city of Nairobi. A perfect spot to rewind.

Nairobi has lots of green spaces and that's refreshing for a lover of nature in any city but the Arboretum is a green haven! It's so relaxing to take walks or just go for a picnic (went there while dating).

This is a perfect place for peace and quiet connection with nature. take me to this place anytime. You should consider keeping away the few groups who come and make so much noise though.

There are plenty of dirt paths and out of the way places amongst the collection of trees and shrubs, but the Arboretum has become a meeting point for all sorts of fringe/strange groups, many highly religious, some individuals very intimidating, staring, watching from the shadows, preaching out loud from up in the trees! Really. We did not feel safe.

This is located in Nairobi, just behind Nairobi university. Best for nature and picnic lovers. A lovely place for team building and or just relaxing. Not so good during rainy season. Can be accessed only during the day.

It is a great place to picnic, rest or take a walk. Its also great for running as it has small up hill, flats and down hills. Like any other park, go with a friend and not alone.

Has a lot of fun and life during festivals. I particularly loved this place during the 11th edition of the Koroga festival featuring Koffi Olomide and his troupe.

This is a nice place if you want to run away from the craziness of Nairobi City. It can get crowded sometimes and is a popular spot for prayer groups. But it is very peaceful and good for walk in nature.
