This is one of the loveliest gardens in the province, situated west of Johannesburg, with a magnificent waterfall and resident Black Eagles. The gardens are well patronized by plant lovers, birders, the general public who come to enjoy the tea garden, and those who patronize the Sunday Picnic Concerts. A ring road runs through the lush area and is an easy walk of about an hour. A telescope is set up to grant a glimpse of the eagles. The nursery sells a variety of indigenous plants, and children enjoy the vast lawn areas where people picnic or simply relax.
The Johannesburg Botanical Garden is an expansive green space that proves to be a respite to the local population in the busy city. Located close to Emmarentia Dam, the gardens pose great scenic potential. Apart from that a great variety of indigenous flora is also displayed in a well-organized manner. Of the different gardens inside The Shakespeare Garden and The Rose Garden attract most number of visitors. The large lawn area is used by local joggers and picnickers, and there might be an occasional concert as well.
