List of The best Parks in Kenya. A park is an area of natural, semi-natural or planted space set aside for human enjoyment and recreation or for the protection of wildlife or natural habitats. Urban parks are green spaces set aside for recreation inside towns and cities. National parks and country parks are green spaces used for recreation in the countryside. State parks and provincial parks are administered by sub-national government states and agencies. Parks may consist of grassy areas, rocks, soil and trees, but may also contain buildings and other artifacts such as monumentsfountains or playground structures. Many parks have fields for playing sports such as baseball and football, and paved areas for games such as basketball. Many parks have trails for walking, biking and other activities. Some parks are built adjacent to bodies of water or watercourses and may comprise a beach or boat dock area. Urban parks often have benches for sitting and may contain picnic tables and barbecue grills.

The largest parks can be vast natural areas of hundreds of thousands of square kilometers (or square miles), with abundant wildlife and natural features such as mountains and rivers. In many large parks, camping in tents is allowed with a permit. Many natural parks are protected by law, and users may have to follow restrictions (e.g. rules against open fires or bringing in glass bottles). Large national and sub-national parks are typically overseen by a park ranger. Large parks may have areas for canoeing and hiking in the warmer months and, in some northern hemisphere countries, cross-country skiing and snowshoeing in colder months. There are also amusement parks that have live shows, fairground rides, refreshments, and games of chance or skill.

Gosana Eco Nature

Gosana Stands for Good Samaritan Nature and Culture Reserve whose construction started in 2007. It is situated at Bofa – Kilifi in a rehabilitated quarry near Kilifi Bay Hotel. This reclaimed quarry is really historic in that it provided ballast for the construction of Kilifi District Hospital in the 1940’s and the construction of Kilifi – Malindi high way around the same time.
It is 4 acres in area and rich in Neem tree population among other indigenous trees. The visionary of this Reserve is equally the founder of Good Samaritan Vision a great expanse of 141/4 acres with the Park/Reserve. The School and Reserve therefore are anticipated to generate enough income to run the orphanage as it grows in size and strength.
