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.  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  need to charge for our public spaces?  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!
