We are delighted to announce that entrance to the Park on Human Rights Day is free! Although Freedom Park commemorates and honours those who suffered the loss and denial of their human rights, it also stands as a celebration of the triumph over the dehumanisation of millions with the advent of democracy in South Africa.

It is also a disconcerting truth that although respect for human rights is upheld in the South African constitution, many continue to violate the rights of others. Thus, free entrance to the Park to the many who may not have experienced a visit here will understand that this monument is issuing a call to all South Africans to embrace, respect, promote and develop those human rights enshrined in our Constitution to build a true non-racial, non-sexist, and democratic society.

Human Rights Day is a time for us to remember and honour those who suffered for the freedom we enjoy today.
