One of Johannesburg’s best dining and shopping areas is the bustling suburb of Parkhurst, which is very well-liked by both locals and tourists. Parkhurst Johannesburg is located just north of Rosebank. You’ll enjoy Parkhurst’s bustling village feel if you enjoy fine dining and small-town shopping. Take a taxi or the Gautrain to the neighbourhood of Rosebank, which is close by and accessible on foot.
Despite being one of Johannesburg’s older suburbs and having been officially recognized as the 67th suburb in 1904, Parkhurst Johannesburg was too small and had too few plots for the landlords who made their fortunes from gold to construct their mansions there.
The 2200 plots in the congested streets are now crammed with little homes and attractive cottages that have frequently been meticulously renovated by their current owners with cheerful coats of paint, unique front doors, and adorable trim gardens. Some residents of Parkhurst might be seen strolling their dogs, reading the day’s news, or simply unwinding in the neighbourhood’s charming Verity Park in the evenings. Parkhurst is an upscale community with a lively village atmosphere while not being a glamorous place like Sandton.
Go to 4th Avenue, which is the city’s bustling centre, if you appreciate the European café culture. You can browse the many antique, craft, and bookstores, hip clothing and gift boutiques, and some of Joburg’s best interior design and decor stores while navigating past people sipping coffee, and green tea, or enjoying an outdoor meal. You can also take a break in one of the many hair and beauty salons (there’s even one for pampered pooches).
Additionally, you’ll find some of the top eateries in the city serving everything from sushi, seafood, pizza, tapas, burgers, and fine dining to milkshakes, craft beer, and fine wine. Parkhurst Johannesburg is home to upscale stores, sidewalk cafes, an amazing array of restaurants, fast-food joints, pubs, bars, and Joburg’s wonderful sunny environment.
