The government plans to restore seven more green spaces in Nairobi after revamping the Michuki Memorial Park. 

Nairobi Arboretum, Karura Forest, City Park, Uhuru Park, Central Park, Jeevanjee Gardens and Ngong Road Forest will be rehabilitated in a project dubbed Green Renaissance. During the commemoration of the World Environment Day on June 5th, President Kenyatta directed the Environment ministry, the Nairobi Metropolitan Services and the Kenya Forest Service to reclaim and conserve the park.

While opening the rehabilitated Michuki Memorial Park on August 14th 2020, President Uhuru Kenyatta said that the recreation center was only the first in a series of environmental rehabilitation programmes his government has initiated, not only in Nairobi, but also across the country. The President also announced a national clean-up campaign to boost the country’s environmental conservation efforts. The campaign which is set to kick off on September 1st 2020 is dubbed ‘Cleaning Up Kenya Campaign’  and shall be anchored on the National Government Administration Officers (NGAOs) at the local level who shall work together with the local communities and with stakeholders both within and outside of Government, to enhance environmental restoration, conservation and management.
