Many Kilometers of trails offer paths for joggers, marathon trainers or strolling nature lovers. For security it is best to walk in a group.
City Park consists of a mixture of native forest trees, cultivated gardens and open spaces for recreation. It is located off Limuru Road between Parklands and Muthaiga, less than 10 minutes from the Central Business District of Nairobi. The park is one of the oldest in the city, having been established in the 1930's. There are several paths through the forest and gardens, which radiate from a large central grass and bandstand. In addition to the precious patch of natural forest, there are several sites of national and historical importance within the park. [From the information pamphlet produced by Friends of City Park.]
