Craighall Park is one of Johannesburg’s upmarket northern suburbs that lie slightly to the west of Sandton, a collection of leafy neighbourhoods that form a belt on the western side of the city between Parkhurst and the sprawling malls of Sandton’s Central Business District.
Craighall Park is also one of the oldest suburbs of the city, and Craighall Park’s large properties and epic gardens that lend the neighbourhood a sense of green tranquillity despite the proximity to Jan Smuts Avenue are a throwback to the era when plots, rather than stands, were on offer here. You’re well placed to get around the city from Craighall Park - it lies conveniently between Beyers Naude Drive and Jan Smuts Avenue, two of the major arteries in the northern spheres of Johannesburg that easily get one from A to B, notwithstanding traffic, and you’re close to the M1.
Hyde Park shopping centre is just around the corner and popular for art movies on a Tuesday evening amongst locals who throng just under the escalators. It’s just as busy on a weekend morning when Jo’burgers do breakfast in style. And both the River Club golf course and the Sandton Sports Club are close by for those seeking a round of golf.
A stay in the northern suburbs of Johannesburg is incomplete without a trip to the energetic hub of fashion, coffee shops and numerous shops that is Sandton City.
