Always a treat to visit these gardens, be it in summer or winter. The summer brings with it beautifully bright flowers and lush green grass. It's a great and quiet place to relax, meet with a group of friends, or bring your family and kids to while enjoying the nature and well crafted landscape
Beautiful and tranquil place to visit whether you want to ride your bike, take a walk, picnic, feed the ducks or sit by the water plus more. Don't always feel too comfortable around the rose gardens though as the people that congregate there like to point their cameras in your direction, especially if you are with a female or children. This issue has never been addressed appropriately
This is a really nice place to relax, I personally enjoy sitting my the dam. There is a lot of grass space for picnics, nice benches all over the garden, there is a stream as well. People do come here to walk their dogs so if you are not a fan of dogs keep that in mind. I highly recommend it
If you’re expecting a botanical garden with a clear picture about the diversity of plants and some info about, think again. Although is still well kept it got some particular features, I would suggest to take some picnic and have an enjoyable and relaxing meal
Very well maintained garden, with lots of wild life birds. The park itself was very clean and safe. This is a great place to enjoy a walk, spend time with family/friends or just to sit and relax nature.
It was a nice day out. Cool place to have a nice pleasant walk with your dogs. Will recommend to all. Please note that this is the Emmarentia Dam and NOT Johannesburg botanical gardens. Unsure why Google picked it up as Johannesburg botanical gardens. Johannesburg botanical garden doesn't allow pets rightly so think.
If you're looking to visit botanical gardens for the educational benefit, this is not the place for you. Not a big diversity of plants and very few information. But if you just want take a stroll in nature, have fun on a trampoline, feed some geese or walk your dog, it's a beautiful park to do so. And it's free!
I thoroughly enjoyed my time here. Came for a lovely picnic, entrance was free with secure parking. Cyclists and children are welcome too, as well as dogs. Gorgeous, vast place, and super clean and well cared for. I love it!!
If you want to have a picnic and have kids, this is the spot to be. Kids have a huge area to run freely, it's safe and you can feed the ducks by die dam. Plenty of shade, just bring a blanket to sit on the grass that's very well maintained.
Well maintained park with memorial benches. Ideal for dog walks, nature walks and family picnics. There is a river that flows through with interesting flora.
