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.

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
