Description

Freedom Park is a public area of historical importance situated on Salvokop in Pretoria, Gauteng. The park celebrates South Africa’s heritage and features a memorial for those killed in the Anglo Boer War, World War 1 World War 2 and the apartheid era.

The Freedom Park is a space where South Africans and visitors alike can reflect on South Africa’s past and share a common motivation for the future. Freedom Park is considered to be one of the most ambitious heritage projects the government has invested in, established on the cornerstones of human dignity, rights, and freedom. According to Dr Wally Serote it is “as a permanent reminder for us, now and for future generations, that South Africans did take a step forward to put closure to the past while not forgetting it.”
