About Freedom Park, Pretoria
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.

Freedom Park, Pretoria Reviews
Fantastic place. Really something for South Africans to be proud of. The entire place is pretty much a work of art. Some really thought provoking installations as well. The venue is clean, modern and safe. We stopped off at Freedom Park after spending some time at the Voortrekker monument. There is a road leading directly from the Voortrekker monument to Freedom park.
South African Heritage build in to one prestigious memorial... In 1999 Nelson Mandela said “the day should not be far off when we shall have a people’s shrine, a freedom park, where we shall honour, with all the dignity they deserve, those who endured pain so we should experience the joy of freedom.”
Freedom Park is a heritage rich place with lots of diverse interesting features that seem to be telling one story of the liberty of the country
Was an unbelievable experience - my tour guide was well informed on local history and culture and had the private to view the decolonization exhibition at the /hapo museum.
Amazing place to learn about South African history. Go early and with enough time. The place is. Great Indian site guide.
