OVERVIEW OF THE PARK
Freedom Park mourns the loss of legendary jazz maestro Dr Phillip Tabane. We pay tribute to one of South Africa’s most innovative jazz guitarists who was best known for his hit on the popular local drama Muvhango. He was the quintessential African performer and was lauded with two honorary doctorates in music. He was also part of @ArtsCultureSA Living Legends Legacy Programme. He was awarded the South African Music Awards (SAMA) Lifetime Achievement Prize.
We pay tribute to veteran legendary photographer Sam Nzima. He will be remembered for his significant contribution he made through photojournalism during the struggle against apartheid. Who can forget the haunting image of a dying Hector Peterson who later became a symbol of resistance against the imposition of Afrikaans as a medium of instruction in the black schools?
This latest addition to the foodie neighbourhood, Dando Zest’s authentic wholesome meals is a culinary delight right here at Freedom Park. This new buffet restaurant offers South African inspired meals, with traditional cuisine as its signature offering.
