Parkview Reviews

Lovely area!
- Yavershree Govender

Parkview is an old-world haven of green tranquility. Its treelined avenues make you forget that you are in a bustling metropolis and charm you back into the real luxuries of life: slow walks, neighbourly chats and accessible shops. Here one remembers the simple joy of sitting in a quiet garden or watching the clouds float by. Its go-slower pace is seductive!
