Rico em história, em pleno centro da capital de Portugal, Lisboa, encontra-se este parque na freguesia de Arroios sobre uma colina que se encontra entre os vales que correspondem à Avenida da Liberdade e à Avenida Almirante Reis.
Este parque herda o nome de Campo dos Mártires da Pátria em memória do General português Gomes Freire de Andrade e onze de seus companheiros, condenados à forca em julgamento encenado, acusados de se revoltar e lutar contra os militares britânicos General e Marechal do Exército Português, Lord Beresford, regente governante de Portugal em vez do rei D. João VI, que vivia no Brasil na época.
Gomes Freire de Andrade era um poderoso maçom português, acusado por Lord Beresford de conspirar para diminuir seu poder de governo em Portugal, na ausência do rei português. Depois de executar Gomes Freire de Andrade e seus companheiros, Lord Beresford viajou então ao Brasil para pedir ao rei D. João VI mais poderes, que lhe foram outorgados.
No entanto, a execução do General Gomes Freire de Andrade pela sentença de Lord Beresford desencadeou uma revolta contra a regência do governante britânico, levou a protestos no Norte de Portugal e intensificou um sentimento anti-britânico, que desencadeou a Revolução Liberal Portuguesa e a queda de Lord Beresford , que foi impedida de desembarcar em Lisboa após retornar do Brasil.
