Every year since October 1955 the world has celebrated International Children’s Day to honour children and the innocence of childhood.
Originating in Turkey in 1920, it was adopted by the United Nations General Assembly in 1954 and established to encourage all countries to institute a day, firstly to promote mutual exchange and understanding among children and secondly to initiate action to benefit and promote the welfare of the world’s children. Freedom Park Lagos is dedicated to pursuing these ideals.
A heritage site built on the ruins of an old colonial prison, Freedom Park is one of the foremost cultural centres in Nigeria. Home to Professor Wole Soyinka,(Nigeria’s Literature Nobel Laureate) we promote, nurture and showcase the all genres of the arts with a constant stream of live musical performances, art exhibitions, theatre performances, Festivals and literary events.
We hereby invite you to join us this Children’s Day to ensure that our children enjoy all the exciting activities and entertainment we have lined up for them within the secure open spaces and serene environment of the Park.
