My wife and I visited Freedom Park for the first time in July and found it a truly wonderful place. In a country full of monuments to racial hatred, such as the nearby Voortrekker Monument, Freedom Park stands out with its emphasis on quiet reflection and reconciliation. The guides are very knowledgeable and far from being intrusive want to share with you their enthusiasm. It is particularly great to have the experience as we did of visiting the Park at the same time as a group of South African high school students singing in celebration of their freedom from apartheid. In short, a great place to discover history, beautifully laid out and landscaped, and incorporating a very moving wall of names modeled on the Washington Vietnam Memorial.
