Throughout the various areas of Abuja, the city has really got it all, and a lot will agree with me that we are surrounded by greenery, cool nightlife spots and a variety of shopping experiences.
What are the chances of enjoying a beautiful landscape? This is exactly what Abuja boasts of, about the best landscape you can find in Nigeria as a whole. These special gardens in the city don’t call for a huge budget, or a long drive, just the need for a change of scenery, to enjoy nature and spend some time away from the busy city.
BMT African Garden
Hidden in plain sight along the busy Ademola Adetokunbo street in Wuse II, BMT is simply breath taking, a hidden gem in the heart of the city. This lovely state of the art themed park has got it all, a library, a mini zoo, a swimming pool, a bar, lounge, nightclub, fully equipped gym, water fountains, a cinema and other recreational activities.
You cannot talk about exploring the beautiful gardens of Abuja without talking about the millennium park.
The millennium park is the largest public park in Abuja and is located at the Maitama district of the city.
The park was inaugurated by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II of the United Kingdom on the 4th of December 2003. Its located near the former Presidential Palace and is close to the center of the administrative and presidential buildings in the city.
The park is so beautifully landscaped with lots of fine walkways and a river that divides the park in two parts. Enjoy the scenery of beautiful flowers, canopy trees and just unwind to nature.
Julius Berger Waterfront park
Located in the Kado area of Abuja lies this splendid getaway, its a perfect place to enjoy nature and unwind in the city especially for family outings.
The luscious green landscape and the calm lake makes for good nature feels. Do try to visit this park whenever you’re in Kado.
