Commissioned in 2004 by Her Royal Highness, Queen Elizabeth II of England, Millennium Park is the largest public park in Abuja and it has a nice walkway with fountains and night lights.

Millennium Park was conceived and designed by an Italian architect Manfredi Nicoletti, and it has become one of the main attractions of Abuja.

Millennium Park offers a good spot to walk the dog or come for a picnic. Evenings are especially nice to enjoy the beautiful lights at the park.

Parking is plentiful and the park’s entrance is off the Three Arm Zone road.

The park has a narrow river running through its centre and the remains of what was probably more extensive riverside woodland clinging to its edges.

The river starts in the distant hills and many of the birds in Abuja use it as a corridor to get from one area to the other.

Millennium park offers visitors opportunity to savour the freedom and freshness that nature offers.

Especially during the weekend when there is the need to relax, visitors can frequent the garden.

A typical visit to the part at the weekend, most especially on Sunday is thrilling.

There are ongoing plans in the pipeline to expand the park with projects to include the millennium tower, cultural centre and a museum that will house a broad collection of African arts.
