I was at Johnson Jakande Tinubu park on Saturday with a friend; I’ve been wanting to go to the park since it’s inaugural because I heard there was free wifi and to enter the park is free. Yaay, you all know I’m all for having fun without spending too much money. The park is actually nice for everybody especially lovers. If you are looking for a place to chill without spending too much on Val day which is about 3days away, this article is for you.
Quick history about the park before I dive into the four things you can do there.
The recreational park was unveiled by the present Lagos State governor, Akinwunmi Ambode to honour three former governors of Lagos Sate – Brig.Gen. Mobolaji Johnson (retd.), Alhaji Lateef Jakande and Senator Bola Ahmed Tinubu. Johnson Jakande Tinubu park is located opposite Lagos State house of Assembly. You can read more about the park HERE.
Here are the four things you can do at the park:
- Take bombasss photos.
You’re surprised, right? Lol; I actually went there to take the bombass photos. I’ve been stalking LASPARK page on Instagram and I can see all the great photos posted on their page. The ambiance at the park is aesthetically pleasing and instagrammable. While there, I saw a wedding train and a fashion brand doing a photo shoot.
If you’re looking for a nice place to do a photo shoot at Ikeja, JJT park is the place to take those bombass pictures.
- Couples love-nest.
JJT park is a cool hangout spot for couples with love-nest to sit in. All you have to do is go along with your drinks and food, you can also get drinks and food from the food yard in the park if you’re team I can’t carry load like me. The ambiance will make whispering of sweet nothings enter bae’s ear.
- Family hangout spot.
The park is more fun going with your families. There are fun activities the kids can do. Activities like play around the playground, the waterfall, and the swing. I love the fact that the park is very children friendly.
4. Have a group picnic or retreat.
You can go there with groups of friends to have a picnic, retreat or a reunion. All you need is a mat, food and drinks and lots of games ideas.
Things I observed during my stay at the park :
- The free WiFi was not working the day I visited the park, I don’t know about now.
- The park opens from 7am and closes at 7pm according to the security guards I asked.
- No entrance fee to enter the park and to also use any of the facilities there.
- No parking space, we had to park opposite the park.
