The Ikoyi Club is one of the oldest continually used sites in Lagos. Established in 1938, the facility has served as a meeting point and recreational space for members of Lagos’s business class and their families, specifically those residing in and around the district of Ikoyi.
As one of the city’s major historic bodies, Ikoyi Club requires its structures to be maintained and renovated on a regular basis, in order to remain in place.
Layer3 counts this as part of its contribution to improving the social life of residents in Lagos, especially the city’s children, who need quality recreational spaces.
