Nestled within the bustling city, Johannesburg Botanical Gardens is a serene escape where urban life harmoniously meets the beauty of meticulously curated gardens and vibrant plant collections.

The gardens contain an attractive mix of bunched indigenous and exotics surrounded by lawns, overlooking the 7,5-hectare Emmarentia Dam, which dates back to the turn of the century, popular with canoeists and boaters. There is also a tea pergola and a floreum for meetings, shows and exhibitions. The dam is fed by two smaller dams above it, which are home to many aquatic birds. The park is fenced and gates at all the entrances are staffed by security guards.
