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.

We were staying at a guesthouse in melville, and this is a great place to walk. Interesting gardens, large open spaces, lots of friendly dogs with their walkers. Beautiful place!

Beautiful gardens, although a little more maintenance would go a long way, but seen as you don't pay entrance i feel you cant complain, Family atmosphere and you can see people go here to relax.
