There is an oasis of serenity amidst the bustling city of Nairobi. It is a place full of fresh air, fantastic feelings and plenty of indigenous trees. If finding serenity is one of the things you greatly treasure, then, The Nairobi Arboretum is a place you need to visit.

The park is a popular picnic spot among many. It is a great spot for morning runs for those who live near it and a place to unwind and get away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Β The Nairobi Arboretum is also a photogenic place for photographers and a place to take slow strolls as you savour its goodness.

Kshs. 50 is the amount one needs to part with to find this serenity. Do we really Β need to charge for our public spaces? Β For taking photographs inside, one needs to part with Kshs. 1000. Do we really need to be charged to showcase the beauty that lies within our city? (This I will deal with at a later date.) Worse, the washrooms are in a very poor state. It could be better!

Give the Nairobi Arboretum a try though!

Live, love!
