One of the oldest and most established suburbs in Johannesburg, Parkview has a high density of green spaces where several reputable schools are based and with graceful homes located along streets named after Irish counties. The suburb was originally laid out in 1907 with large residential properties and open public spaces the norm. Fortunately Parkview has escaped mall fever and the public spaces and leafy avenues remain. Parkview’s distinguished schools, championship golf course, easy access to the main highways, high speed fibre bandwidth and community parks have attracted young families and those seeking respite from Johannesburg’s relentless pace.
Parkview has a genteel village charm with strong community ties.
Top 6 reasons to visit Parkview
1. Stroll through the suburb to visit the happening Tyrone Avenue with its pavement cafés and unique shops, George Hay Park where the residents arrange regular outdoor events, the old Parkview Castle modelled on an ancestral home in Kilkenny, Ireland and end off at the Lawn Tennis Club to watch or participate in a game of tennis with the locals.
2. Take a walk to Zoo Lake, a large lake set in a community park. Every Sunday, Zoo Lake hosts an open air Artists under the Sun event, popular for those seeking to purchase unique and affordable artwork. The park is also used for jazz and other music festivals.
3. Spend a day at the Johannesburg Zoo to view the more than 2000 animals housed here. The zoo is renowned for having successfully bred Siberian tigers and has a popular white lion enclosure. A fun run called the Zoo Trot passes through the zoo grounds and the Zoo Snooze is a fun family overnight campout.
4. The Wits Art Museum exhibits artwork ranging from traditional west- and central- African art to local contemporary works. Open Wednesday to Sunday. Travel the Nelson Mandela Bridge while there.
