  • I really loved the ambience of this place. It's a place right in the middle of the city, but you feel that you are away from the traffic and noise. Quite calming and comforting. It's elegantly designed with an amphitheatre, a food court and multiple depictions of Nigerian culture. Though I feel there should be no entry fees on days of no concerts (we went on a Sat night but there was no event), it still is a must go to place if you are in Lagos.
  • This place is beautiful and got alot of information about the Nigerian History. The sculptures are awesome. A place to come with your loved ones and family to relax and enjoy the beauty of the park. The food by the Brooklyn Bistro inside the park is delicious and they do have shows here every now and again.
