Nairobi Arboretum

The Kenya Forest Service is planning to partner with the South Korean government to renovate and beautify the Nairobi Arboretum.

Peter Kirigua, who is the KFS Board chairman, said on Wednesday that he has held talks with the South Korean ambassador to Kenya Kwon Young-dae and they discussed environment exchange programmes for KFS officers to attend training in South Korea.

Kirigua said beautiful trees and flowers need to be planted in the arboretum so it can attract more visitors.

“Our Nairobi arboretum needs renovation. We need to put up chairs and benches and do other necessary renovations to make it more attractive,” he said.

Kirigua urged governors to select places in their towns for arboretums.
