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

Visited Freedom park in the daytime. There are some statutes around the park, but nothing much else. Perhaps it was too early. The craft shop that was open wasn't very interesting. Can skip this attraction except when there is a concert.

Located within the old British prisons in Central Lagos. It was converted a few years ago into a fantastic entertainment venue. Nice place to visit if you want a taste of authentic Lagos enjoyment and food . Nice local acts. All sort of local delicacies.

In the evenings there is entertainment - a wide range of bands who perform on one of the three stages. At other times the Park hosts festivals including the Lagos Theatre... More
