Emmerentia Dam is a large dam and park in Johannesburg which is home to the Johannesburg Botanical Gardens (not to be confused with the Walter Sizulu National Botanical Garden in Roodepoort). Every Sunday morning my wife meets her friend there to take the dogs for a walk. Yesterday she was raving about how beautiful the place is looking right now with the trees in the rose garden section in full blossom and so I suggested we go a bit later in the day. Glad we did.
The park is a popular recreation spot for many Johannesburgers. On any week-end you’ll find hordes of both young and old. Mothers walking their babies, pet lovers walking their dogs, lovers walking their hormones. The park is also favoured by many wedding photographers.
I hope you’ve enjoyed this little stroll around one of Johannesburg’s most beautiful attractions. “Til next time… 🙂
