This place is literally where Ghana's history began. Kwame Nkrumah, the first President and one of the founding fathers, declared Ghana's Independence from the British here in 1957. He is often called the African Lenin and is greatly admired and respected by the people. This memorial is a dedication to him. The park stretches across five acres and houses a small museum documenting his life. It also has a small mausoleum, where he and his wife are buried. Independence day celebrations are held here and a tour of this place will give you much information about Ghana's history.
