Where is it?


Parktown North, an established residential suburb north of Johannesburg with its village feel and ancient charm, is definitely a place to see and be seen.
The streets are lined with gorgeous plane trees and there is always a bustle of runners and residents walking their dogs. Parktown North is centrally located close to Rosebank and Sandton, both of which are serviced by the Gautrain, with a few art galleries and a number of interesting shops. It is also one of the first suburbs in Johannesburg to receive fibre optic cabling allowing residents to enjoy high-speed internet connectivity.
The suburb is home to some of the best steakhouses and restaurants in Johannesburg, with some of the area’s popular dining spots located on 7th Avenue. “The restaurant strip is certainly a highlight in Parktown North and the best steaks in town come from our small but popular Turn ‘n Tender.”
foodies are spoiled for choice in this village – you can choose to have craft beer at the Foundry, grab a quick coffee at Vida e Caffe after a morning run or, after walking the dogs, visit dog-friendly eatery and local hangouts.
For groceries, head to Woolworths at the Parktown Quarter as well as stock up on goodies at The Market Place, Parktown North’s own home industry shop.
I love the neighbourhood because it has a village feel, yet it remains trendy and is a hip place to be seen.
