The Park is located on a 52-hectare site on Salvokop in Pretoria – a vantage point that offers visitors a spectacular panorama of our capital city and beyond. The mandate of Freedom Park is the creation of a memorial and monument that will narrate a story spanning a period of 3.6 billion years through the following seven epochs: Earth, Ancestors, Peopling, Resistance and Colonisation, Industrialisation and Urbanisation, Nationalism and Struggle, Nation Building and Continent Building. This is displayed in the //hapo Museum. The name //hapo means „dream‟, which has been drawn from a Khoi proverb that translates into “A dream is not a dream until it is shared by the entire community”.
The Park is also home to the Garden of Remembrance – to acknowledge those that contributed to the freedom of the country, and the Wall of Names – an awe-inspiring structure (697m), inscribed with the names of those who died during eight conflicts within South Africa’s history.
