Freedom park is nice! From the former British prison grounds to a serene (when there are no concerts 😀) place to hang out is an amazingly good choice. You can roam around, see the former cell lay-out, see Yoruba and other sculptures, visit the art gallery and have a good lunch or dinner (the burgers are good!). Every third friday... More

Freedom park at Ojota in Lagos State of Nigeria has grown to become the stage for mass protests and struggle against man's inhumanity to man exhibited amongst the ruling class. It was made popular by the late Gani Fawenhinmi; a too-notch advocate for the masses. The popular occupy Nigeria(which brought the country to a halt for 2weeks)in 2012 was championed... More

Constructed to preserve the heritage of lagos, this former prison site has undergone a rebirth and now captures the attention of fun lovers in Lagos. Its a meet, greet, eat, drink, listen to music and dance away atmosphere. I particularly try to attend the "Wajo" events which is organized every last Thursdays of the month. A few guest artists show... More

Very nice place to relax with friends or family. With events or live music happening ever so often, there's little scope for boredom. A former prison yard - the architecture and historical past is cool too.

The idea of such a Parkin the Centre of Lagos is good, however it has not been well maintained. It is a meeting place for young up and coming artists and a venue for live shows. It lacks activity and is not so often frequented unless there is an event. I feel that as a park in the heart of... More

lots of things going on there: live music, cinema,.. every (week)day has a different focus. ask locals about the program and decide according to your interest. you get food from different shops e.g. just vegetarian, or just fish, ... competition is hot, so service is good.

Freedom Park is a really good place to go in the evenings if you are interested in relaxing in the open air with local finger food and nice afrobeat music . Weekends especially Fridays are more upbeat as there is a concert of sorts with artistes performing on one of the stages there. You can enjoy yourself without stretching your... More

At freedom park, you are free to relax. You experience freedom from traffic, work stress and boredom. You are transported to a different world, free of class distinctions. Don't be surprised that the man next seat talking animatedly is your unsmiling boss in the office. As the name suggest, you are free to relax with music, good meal and great... More
