We have been to Freedom Park on a few occasions and would recommend it to anyone visiting Lagos. You can go at any time but if there isn't an event on then there isn't too much to see, but it is still a peaceful place...More

It was a pleasant surprise to find the oasis of peace right in the middle of the CBD-Central Business District, of Lagos. I had heard of it previously, but was not expecting it to be so peaceful; perhaps it is because there is a gate...More

Maybe it's because it had a calming effect on me. Lagos can be a bit overwhelming and so to find a place where one can relax with food and drinks while enjoying the live band was simply gratifying. Freedom Park used to be a prison...More

It is not advisable. There is not really green grass to sit on, and not that many tables available and the tables are usually taken by those consuming food and beverages from the restaurants.

Well, I guess it closes around midnight. You can visit any day. It's best if you go in the evening. Ask for when Afropolitan Vibes is holding. You won't regret going. Make sure you try the palm wine and Suya. It's really... More
