“Good park too dirty”
3 of 5 bubbles 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.

“Nice place to hang around but nothing much to do”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2013

Nice place to hang around but nothing much to do. Its a great track to walk and play but that's it. There is nothing extra inside.

“So many trees!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 23, 2013

As a natural history lover, I appreciated the interpretive signs and the large number of identification plaques on the trees. Lots of little trails and broad paths run through the park, making it perfect for running or walking. The roads leading into it are also have sidewalks, so it's a perfect jogging destination.

“Great escape from the city”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 24, 2013

It is a haven in the bustle of Nairobi and a nice place to get away from the traffic and smog. Unfortunately, you'll find trash littering the park at times and the trails can get messy during the rainy season.

“Yes its full of trees”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 11, 2013

If you want a walk away from the hustle and bussle then this place is for you.
You will find it full of couples (which sometimes can be very unhappy if you want to share an area) we did see a coupe of church groups holding small masses here, (if thats your thing enjoy)
