Writer's Review This is one of the major leisure hotspots for locals. Whatever you seek from the local dishes, drinks and extras, you can be sure to find here. However, it is a rowdy sort of place with untarred roads powdered with red, dusty earth. Also, since it is an open spot that admits all, it attracts both the good and bad so it is advisable to be very cautious with your belongings, and preferably go with a local if you are new to Abuja. People like to hang out where there are many other people. I don’t know why, but I think there is fun in numbers, in seeing other people around. I come here because everyone comes here-Mr Edwin Agbo I have been hearing of Sokale Garden for long so came here and I am surprised by how big it is. I didn’t expect it would be this big-Ms Grace Achuba
