This is one of the most revered sites in the city, and visiting it is a sobering experience. The park was built to commemorate all those who gave their lives in the formation of South Africa’s freedom. The park’s design draws inspiration from most South African influences. There’s a great 700-metre wall on which are inscribed the names of those who died in major South African conflicts. The freedom park museum offers a deep insight into South Africa’s formation, whether geological, cultural or political. It’ll take quite a while to cover the whole site.
Tourists who visit the place say that they leave feeling humbled. It’s a very touching experience. While you’re here, take note of the Isivivani, the Amphitheatre and the Eternal Flame. Even children come away quite affected by the place.
