The Arboretum is another historical site, trees and shrubs from all over the world are in one place, it is a special environment in a city where people can go and walk and commune with nature.

The National Arboretum was a nice mixture of thick Kenyan forests, with pathways criss-crossing over the sloping ground through the low hanging trees and ferns, and some nice lawns. Some areas were left quite untended, apart from the pathways themselves, while other areas were well maintained and lined with information plaques on the trees. A nice, open lawn was studded with snoozing locals when I visited in the middle of the day, and the whole area had a nice, relaxed atmosphere. An interesting place to go for a walk or jog, with a nice lawn for picnicking or just enjoying the sunshine.

I attended a wedding hosted here and realised that the ground was beautiful and ample for hosting tents.

This is a wonderful place to take children or just go alone for a quiet walk. The arboretum features almost all of the plants that Kenya boasts. Going mid-rainy season means more flowers are blooming, but it's really lovely at any time.

this can be expected of a public park! It is well kept thanks to Friends of Nairobi Arboretum and has an excellent jogging track ideal for fitness enthusiasts. Not so great is the lack of privacy especially over the weekends more so from the "quite loud" prayer groupings that favour this spot for their retreats!
