Freedom Park – Discover South Africa’s Great History

Just outside of Pretoria, on Salvokop, is a truly unique monument to the evolution of South Africa, and to humanity. It is not a symbol of pain and suffering, but a reminder of the past and a celebration of the present, and the future. Freedom Park is an attraction in South Africa that highlights the significant events in the country’s history, and the moments that shaped and paved the road to freedom and democracy. With the Freedom Park being such a massive undertaking, it is being constructed in phases, and on completion, it will be a noteworthy and fascinating work of art.

The breathtaking garden of remembrance is a sight to behold, covering an area of twenty-five thousand square meters. Statues and sculptures keep the memory of fallen heroes alive, as does the Wall of Names. Other significant features to look forward to in the future, is the interactive library, the museum and a variety of natural features, which together, will become a place where South African citizens can retrace the history of the country, and visitors can discover the diversity of this magnificent country. Freedom Park commemorates past victories and reminds us all of our roots; giving South Africa a monument to be proud of.
