Always a pleasure to stop over at Freedom Park, however brief, and whether there is an event or not. It's not just the natural environment that thrills: it is the totality of Its features: the galleries, the museum, its amphitheatre, the food court and the several sculptures dotting the premises and reflect traditional Nigerian lifestyles. A great place to relax.
Great outdoors park. Saw a band perform and it was pretty good. I love the atmosphere and the statutes carved out of marble present there, as well as the trees which are labelled for informing people about what type they are. While this place may be pretty chill, the drinks and food are rather on the moderate side. Check out their schedule before visiting, sometimes they don't have any performance going on.
