OVERVIEW OF THE PARK
September marks Heritage and Tourism Month celebrations in South Africa and this year’s theme is in line with government’s programme to celebrate the centenary year of Tata Nelson Mandela and Mama Albertina Sisulu.
Heritage Month 2018 will be commemorated under the theme “The Year of Nelson Mandela: Advancing Transformation of South Africa’s Heritage Landscape”. At the centre of the 2018 Heritage Month celebrations will be the transformation of the heritage landscape, and in particular, the contribution made by former President Nelson Mandela.
Freedom Park pays tribute to Kofi Annan, former UN Secretary-General and perhaps one of the most important and powerful leader the organisation ever had. Annan, who was the world's most famous Ghanaian and a source of great national pride, passed away after a brief illness at the age of 80.
Freedom Park pays tribute to the wife of one of the greatest leaders of our struggle, Robert Mangaliso Sobukwe. The 91 year old Mme Zondeni Sobukwe passed away in the early hours of this morning after a long illness.
