Gauteng DestinationsParkview, Johannesburg

Parkview is part of the greater Rosebank area and just down the road from the commercial centre of Rosebank and its shopping mall.

Zoo Lake borders on Parkview and is a favourite ambling site of Jo-burgers. It takes about an hour to stroll around the lake, which, on the first weekend of every month, you can combine with ‘Artists under the Sun’ - an art market and tea at the popular restaurant at Zoo Lake. The timeless old suburb of Parkview is one of the few remaining areas in Johannesburg where South Africans can still stroll, cycle and jog along its tree-lined avenues.

Parkview borders on Saxonwold and Forest Town, both of which were developed as forest plantations. Add to this the fact that over a million blue and red gum, oak, pine and wattle trees were planted around Zoo Lake and the Zoo, and you can understand why Parkview is such a breathtakingly pretty suburb. The beautiful old plane trees that line Dundalk Avenue are part of this original plantation.

Many of the old homes in Parkview have been overhauled and renovated, creating more contemporary living space whilst managing to keep the existing character of the pretty old homes here. And the charming little Parkview village complete with delightful shops, delis, restaurants and a village library on the suburb’s highstreet, where one constantly jostles for a parking space, only add to the character of a suburb that is over 100 years old.
