[crfp enabled="2" displayStyle="grey" displayAverage="1" filterComments="0" displayTotalRatings="0" displayBreakdown="0" displayLink="0"]

Set in the heartland of Joburg, Emmarentia Park has two major attractions for visitors. The Johannesburg Botanic Gardens, and Emmarentia Dam. The garden has seven distinct gardens – the Herb Garden, the Hedge Garden, the Succulent Garden, the Shakespeare Garden, the Rose Garden, the Chapel Garden and the Arboretum (a collection composed exclusively of trees). The dam offers rowing enthusiasts the opportunity to enjoy their sport within the city. The dam attracts a variety of bird life, while on the wide spaces to the north west of the dam people walk their dogs, picnic, jog along the pathways, or simply chill out.

The botanical gardens have the potential to be stunning with proper care and attention but it currently feels neglected and unloved. The signage for the plants is almost nonexistent. Lovely open...

Head to the Johannesburg Botanical Gardens to spend some time outdoors in a more tranquil setting. These gardens offer beautiful walkways, arches and relaxing parkside benches, with sprawling lawns...

Not a place be on your own, be wary . but still a nice place to walk or picnic. The gardens are extensive so you can unwind from city turmoil
