Lessons from Kigali on how Nairobi can restore its green spaces

Urban green spaces can offer many benefits to communities. They can improve community development by providing opportunities for socializing and physical activity. They beautify neighborhoods and provide opportunities for education as well as recreation.

The design potentialities of green spaces are dependent on their location. For example, parks located near housing could provide a safe area for children to play, while parks located near offices could be used as lunch spots or break areas for office workers.

            The lessons from Kigali are surely to be adapted by every serious city across Africa.

              Fostering urban green spaces is a valuable concept. By learning from Kigali's approach, Nairobi can enhance community well-being, encourage social interaction, and contribute to a healthier, more vibrant city environment.

                        Great idea, the Nairobi authorities should consider to create more green spaces and at the same time use them to create awareness on the importance of guarding nature.
