Johannesburg

The Parks and Greenside

12 Aug 2019
Often referred to as the ‘leafy suburbs’, the Parks include the wealthy suburbs of Parkview, Parkwood, Parktown North, Craighall Park and Parkhurst. Throw in the Johannesburg Zoo, Zoo Lake and the nearby Emmarentia Dam and you have some of the city’s major outdoor attractions amid pretty, well-manicured tree-lined suburban streets.

Parkview and Parkhurst have their own high streets: Parkview’s has the ambience of a modest village, while in Parkhurst you are likely to spot a Ferrari or two parked outside one of the many popular restaurants on the 4th Avenue strip. Life in Parktown North is dominated by eateries and a grocery story, while Parkwood has many of the city’s finest art galleries collected in two or three blocks along Jan Smuts Avenue, complimented by a trendy strip of bars and restaurants clustered around Park Corner (the corner of Jan Smuts Avenue and Bolton Road).
