TINUBU SQUARE
Over 20 species of plants and flowers are neatly arranged in perfect order along the neatly paved lawns. The spot that is sitting on a 2,000 square meter ground has played It has played prominent roles in the history of Lagos and its development.
The park is iron-fenced with generous openings for tourists to behold the beautiful landscape. By the western strips is a beautiful inscription of the name ‘Tinubu Square,’ sitting on two iron rods backing the bigger fountain. When one looks at it from the street, several skyscrapers housing various business interests in the CBD merged into the skyline. Inside the fountain, four big birds-with wings flapping in the water-were erected on the three layers of round stone spiral stairs.
The water from the big fountain flows directly like a channel into the smaller fountain creating a labyrinth. Somehow, one gets the feeling that the cool breeze came directly from this artificial lake. The water was sparkling clean and the fountain itself was neat.
Another precious resource at the Square is marble which paved the lawns and some had statue sitting on them, these add to the beauty of the landscape.
