Looking for the perfect spot for entertainment, live music, soccer watching, dance performances, film festivals, museum, stage plays, good food and drinks, all within an environment of historical proportions? Then look no further as the former colonial prison, turned Freedom Park, gives you this unforgettable all-in-one experience.
This beautiful memorial and leisure park was ‘re-birthed’ to preserve the colonial heritage and history of the Old Broad Street prison which was ‘home’ to the heroes who fought for Nigeria’s independence.
Enjoy the sights and sounds of a striking fish pond which houses a vibrant army of catfish. Make sure you try the grilled fish and palm wine. You’ll love it! There’s also a bar upstairs as well as stunning artworks spread all over the garden.
The prison cells have been carefully preserved for your viewing pleasure.
