In an effort to encourage more people to visit Freedom Park, CEO Jane Mufamadi and her team embarked on an extensive outreach programme to market the park.
She said they’ve taken the outreach programme to the Free State, Western Cape and Mpumalanga.
“The support we got from these provinces has been immense and we are planning to talk to other provincial departments, especially the departments of arts and culture, to support us in marketing Freedom Park.”
She added that since the outreach campaign there has been increased interest in the park and she is certain that the number of people visiting the park will increase.
“South Africans are warming up to Freedom Park as a tourist destination.
“We believe there is nothing stopping us from reaching 100 000 visitors in three to five years’ time. The highest figure we recorded was 54 000 annually. This year we are on course to reach
60 000 visitors.” This year Heritage Month will be celebrated unde the heme:”Human Treasures and Legends: Our Living Heritage.
Freedom Park is open seven days a week from 8am - 4:30pm
