This is a strategic site for the country, it was created around a decommissioned prison. Lots of beautiful site to see, memorable performances and less I forget best food too. Anybody visiting should.... more »
Beautiful space if you are a lover of the performing arts. The acoustics in the amphitheatre is really not bad. It does feel overall crammed and the lighting at night could be a lot better. A major downside being the cost of refreshment in the park. Spaces such as this should have regular pricing.
Freedom Park is a place of history. It's a remodeled prison that now houses various restaurants, shops, art gallery, live music and stage plays. The ambience is very artsy with sculptures, maintained prison spaces. Lovely for a photo shoot and historical tour. Also nice to chill at night. P. S: parking may be tight especially when they have an event but there are places to park around. Try parking inside first for a fee. Also be careful because the street to the entrance is a one-way street.
