We were made to feel totally welcome, the live band acknowledged our presence and the audience greeted us. We then went to the "food court" and sampled some local fare with cold Heineken's as it was , as usual , a warm , balmy night in Lagos. There are many pieces of art depicting the historic past of this old... More

A good job ofor regenerating an old prison ground to a recreational park was hugely successful. There are a lot of sitting areas to relax as well as sculptures to remind one of what previously stood there. There are two concert areas that can take up to 250 ppl and a party ground for bachelor eve styled parties. It is... More

There's hardly a thing to dislike about Freedom Park Lagos. Their Afropolitan Fridays are to die for. Great company, music, palm wine... fun fun fun!!!

Freedom Park is on Broad Street, in the heart of downtown Lagos. It is a large, open and uncluttered space. We went to an outdoor spoken word session - music and poetry. Some extremely average but one young woman performed an extraordinary poem! We sat with cold Star beers and enjoyed. Then to the Grill Station for wonderful Suya....

quiet, artsy with a little bit of history. The sea breeze at night is divine. Live bands and concerts if you go at the right time/Day (Thursday I think). very chilled and laid back. I really like the place

A place to go from your hotel for some evening music, art, history, food and drink. Best way to get there might be by taxi, if you are not local.

Freedom Park used to be a real prison with a history, holding some of Nigeria's pillars of the country;s history, as well as 'common' criminals, of course! Today, it is simply the best place in Lagos to get get a feel of the art in an environment that is in itself a totally creative experience. Tucked in the middle of... More

Absolutely enjoyed myself during the January 2015 edition. Afropolitan vibes is a celebration of live African music which attracts expats and locals. There is a food court with some nice spots that serve vegan, chinese, nigerian cuisine etc.

Saw a play there- was alright. Liked the native vibe and the cultural references. Wish it was bigger and there was more to see. It was a cool outing- not earth-shattering but pleasant enough.
