ACCRA CENTRAL

The Ring Road, which runs from the Korle Lagoon in the west to Kwame Nkrumah Circle in the north, east to the confluence of Independence Avenue, and on to Osu, creates a ring around Accra’s oldest neighborhoods and divides downtown Accra from the outer suburbs.

The CBD, which encompasses the historic districts of Usshertown, Tudu, Victoriaborg, West Ridge, and East Ridge, as well as the historic residential neighborhoods of Jamestown, Adabraka, Asylum Down, North Ridge, and Christiansborg/Osu, is located in central Accra.

Despite the establishment of outlying commercial districts like as Airport City across the city, Central Accra remains the administrative and cultural heart of Accra, housing government agencies, hotels, enterprises, and financial institutions.

The Kwame Nkrumah Mausoleum, the National Museum, Independence Square, the National Theatre, and the Ohene Djan Stadium are the main attractions in central Accra.

ACCRA NORTH

Northern Accra is both a residential and commercial neighborhood. The “37” Military Hospital, The Flagstaff House, various foreign embassies, Achimota School, Achimota Golf Park, and the University of Ghana’s Legon campus, which acts as Accra’s northern limit, are all located in the region.

Northern Accra is defined as the regions north of Ring Road West and Central, east of Winneba/Graphic Road, west of Liberation Road, and the districts roughly north and south of the Kwame Nkrumah expressway.

ACCRA EAST

Eastern Accra is mostly residential and is located north of Ring Road East, going as far north as the Kwame Nkrumah Motorway; the region is bounded on the west by Liberation Road.

ACCRA WEST

Western Accra is mostly a residential and commercial district. Despite being physically smaller than the northern and eastern sections of the city due to the massive saltponds of Tettegu and Aplaku, it is home to one of Accra’s most notable monuments, the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital.

Accra West refers to the regions west of Ring Road West, reaching as far west as the saltponds and south of Graphic Road.
