Botanical Gardens, Emmarentia and Roodepoort
Both the Johannesburg Botanical Gardens and the Walter Sisulu Botanical Gardens and beautiful and lush, and are perfect destinations for a picnic in the park. At the Johannesburg Botanical Gardens you can wander through a rose garden, the herb patch, or take a look at the collection of succulents. The garden nearest to the dam is also dog friendly so your much loved pets can join you on a summer outing. The Walter Sisulu Garden in Roodepoort, features a tranquil waterfall and is home to a pair of Verreaux’s Eagles, which you might be lucky enough to spot. If you’re up for some activity before your relaxing picnic, there is a hiking trail, allowing you to get some exercise in the fresh air and sunshine.
