Some may consider Weltevreden Park an urban jungle. However, this isn’t altogether true, as the area was developed with a fair amount of attention given to the inclusion of trees. Many individual townhouses have well-manicured, back gardens; and the park is within reach of communal play areas for children.
Situated in the heart of Roodepoort, Weltevreden Park has become a popular residential zone for several reasons. Existing as a gated community means that safety is of paramount importance, meaning that locals can enjoy a sedate lifestyle in the middle of the city. City dwellers don’t have to commute to the northern suburbs to enjoy peace and tranquillity as Weltevreden Park offers a slower pace of life to its residents.
The area is an oasis in central Johannesburg, a district known for its tall skyscrapers, congestion and limited greenery. While Weltevreden Park is no stranger to early morning and late evening traffic jams, travellers are pleasantly distracted by the sights of tree-lined streets and the verdant greenery of the parks.
Apart from being incredibly safe and environmentally-friendly, the location of Weltevreden Park also makes it a rather appealing place to live. A couple of malls are found in the nearby vicinity, where residences can enjoy shopping expeditions on the weekends. Northcliff, a trendy northern suburb, is a short drive away and offers trendy restaurants and nightclubs to revellers in the surrounding areas.
If you’ve got four-legged family members who are in need of some weekly exercise, Emmarentia Dam is said to be the best, pet-friendly park in Johannesburg. Not only is the dam a haven for dogs, but it is a place where families can meet up, socialise and relax on the sprawling lawns.
Travel a little further afield, and you’ll reach the busiest street in Johannesburg Central, Diagonal Street. The area is characterised by the presence of impressive skyscrapers, including the iconic 11 Diagonal Street. Designed by the highly acclaimed architect, Helmut Jahn, this building is known for its unique design; it is emblazoned with diamond patterns.
Travelers who are looking to travel through Johannesburg at warp speed can hop aboard the Gautrain. The Gautrain, which was established in 2012, is convenient and safe for locals and tourists who are looking for a fast and reliable mode of transport. The trains travel at 160 kilometers per hour, with locomotives regularly passing through stations to pick up commuters.
