Picnic spot at Emmarentia Dam
Emmarentia Dam Picnic Area

Emmarentia Dam is situated less than 6 km from the Johannesburg city centre, and just a few minutes from Sandton, making it the ideal location for anyone in town on business who wants to experience the natural side of the city.

The suburb of Greenside is aptly named, boasting an abundance of outdoor splendour. The Johannesburg Botanical Gardens, right next to the dam, are home to approximately 30 000 trees, more than 4 500 rose bushes and a stunning herb garden.
