Attractions

Emancipation Park is sprawled over 2.83 hectares (7 acres), with well-paved pathways, tropical plants and flower beds. Walkers and joggers head here in the morning to exercise on the jogging tracks, while the dewy green lawns sparkle under the glow of golden incandescent lights at night. This park was built as a symbol of liberation and its highlight is the large, albeit controversial, sculpture Redemption Song at the park entrance. This 3.35-meter (11-foot) sculpture has two statues made of bronze. They represent a nude female and a nude male figure looking up at the sky in hope of emancipation. The park is a popular venue for concerts, performances, exhibitions and other large-scale events.
