Nairobi Park Scenery

The weekend is here and am sure all of you busy bees have been looking forward for that two day rest from work, school or anything that you might be doing during the week. Well, I have a small idea that may help you not only relax but also bond with your family or friends; Picnics. Yes, who wouldn’t want a nice outdoor, fun time on a lush green park with your kikoys laid out and good food, making memories with your beloved. Well I will give you an insight of where you can have such kind of moments in Nairobi as I tell you about the different parks we have in Nairobi.

The one park that comes to everyone’s mind who has lived in Nairobi, or let me just say my mind, is Uhuru Park. Uhuru Park was opened in 1969 by the late Mzee Jomo Kenyatta who was the first president of the country. Since then it has been used for a large number of different occasions. It has an assembly point where many political and religious rallies are held but that’s not my focus today. Today I emphasize on the beautiful green park that overlooks the city.

One can have a very relaxing time on this park with the right  people at the right spot. With a man-made lake on the park the ambience that is provided is really good for those who want to have a good time. One can go for boat rides on the lake at a fee and enjoy the view of the city from the park.

Another park that is a favourite of mine is Nairobi Central Park. This park is just next to Uhuru Park bordered by Kenyatta Avenue. Its a much greener park, very well manicured grass and has a more relaxing ambience with a very beautiful view of Nairobi. This park is a very good place which I highly recommend for those who would want to have a picnic next to the city.

The final park that I will feature is the Aboretum. Located in the leafy suburbs of Kileleshwa this is one park that gives you the ultimate picnic experience. Tall trees, green grass lawns, this is a very good park for those who want to have a good time with a degree of privacy. It is a really big park and with the many trees planted in the park it ensures a level of privacy is kept.

With that you have a small feature that can help you choose a picnic site that is near the Central Business District and with that I hope you will all have a good weekend. See you next week. Peace.
