A lovely place in the middle of the hustle and bustle. A great place to hang out with friends and enjoy some food, drink and music. There are some historic landmarks scattered around in the park as it used to be prisons. Unfortunately the museum...More

One of Lagos' hidden gems I believe....there's plenty to do here....live music, shows, food and once you have good company....even better. I especially liked the food at the barbecue joint, the Grill Station...ribs....just right! Fish and chips....yummy!

Freedom Park is Lagos's mini Soho. It's the place to be hangout for the intellectual "rebels" with a creative side. A potpourri of activities, different tastes in music and entertainment, it's situated in a historic landmark, the Broad Street prisons, a colonial relic with significance...More

Lots of trip hazards in the dark as it is poorly lit and many steps in awkward places on the paths. Bars and restaurants are poor ( one restaurant was empty of furniture and equipment) and the stage area is small and tucked away. I...More

Freedom park comes with a unique mix of things to do. I go there quite often, usually when I've been able to free up some money. Money, though not too expensive is required to enjoy your visit to this place. You must try the Big...More

Really chilled space if you're just looking to hang with your friends over bottles😂. Used to be our hangout spot every Friday. They also had the pull of Afropolitan vibes but that has been moved to another location.

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

Small view into the old style prison, see at least once. The real attraction for me is the third Friday of every month (check website for Afropolitan Vibes) it is a music concert which is a fun Friday evening.

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
