Lovely place. Music is spot on . Different foods (Chinese cuisines most especially) from different restaurants to choose from. Embedded in nature. Home to a lotta artists cos a lotta shows are being held there. Experience was / is and will always be totally worth...More
Freedom Park is a quiet artistic park in the centre of Lagos. The combination of a park and bars/joints make the place stand out. It has space and is a good hangout for those that do not mind hanging out outdoors.
A hidden gem to most locals. Really liked the house band and the pepper soup was decent. The grilled whole fish seemed to be a hot item with everyone though I didn't order. Try and make sure there is an event when you'd like to...More
Nice place if you are visiting, to hang out and catch a glimpse of the many facets of Lagos, whether cuisine, plastic arts or even theater or music. Freedom Park is a must see place, exuding many magical memories of old Lagos, as well
Freedom park is a place you can relax and have screens of the past. Heard it was a port where slaves where taken out of Lagos, some history can also be seen in form of sculptures at the venue. Also don't miss the good music...More
Located right in the middle of a densely populated medium/low income neighborhood, one may think twice of visiting Freedom Park in order to avoid contact with undesirable elements who throng the area. The gleeful news is that the serenity of the place is guaranteed once...More

Photo shoot is allowed in the park but you must have it at the back of your mind that there is a price attached to it. The good thing is that you can negotiate. The price for a photo shoot is different from that of a video shoot. You may have to pay more for a video shoot. Contacting the chairman, not the manager will make your work easy. I have done this before. The men at the gate and the so called manager will try to exploit you but if you can contact the main people who administer the place directly, your work will be easier. Then again, to avoid the hassle, you can go there ahead of your shoot and negotiate.

i’ve never really figured out if there is an official entrance fee on a regular day but it seems that there is usually an entrance fee when there are events. Even if there was an entrance fee any other time it will be nominal.
it’s a great place to hang out with a group and food is affordable and you have quite a big choice.
it can get pretty crowded during events, so if you’re looking for a quiet hang out, this probably won’t be the place to go during those times. non event time it’s a nice place to chill in the evening and you may even stumble across one or two Nollywood stars doing just that 😉
