The Freedom Park is a people’s shrine that weaves the story of where we come from and the events that shaped what South Africa is today. It is a reflection of the sacrificial achievements that is South Africa and issues forth a call to marvel at the phenomenon of a country on the brink of civil war that chose a road of negotiation instead of pitting brother against brother.
