I have been in this town only in night. It is a great place to visit and to have a relaxed diner!

There is many cafe along the roads to choose from...I enjoy having choices especial for food and this place I felt like it offered that.

There are no shopping centers or malls in Parktown, but it is lousy with the most beautiful historical buildings and homes from the wealthy mining history of Johannesburg. It is well worth a strenuous walkabout, and walking tours can be arranged through various institutions. Take a camera!!

This is a vibrant area of Joburg with good restaurants, clubs and bars and not far from Rosebank Mall which hosts the Cinema Nouveau and the Sunday Rooftop Market.

Area has definitely changed over time - alot more development taking place making the area very congested. Sill the hub of most businesses

The little shops and restaurants dotted along the sidewalks make you feel like you are walking in a part of Monaco or Italy. One feels safe and free and the people are all so nice and friendly ...
