Parkwood is located in the leafy northern suburbs of Johannesburg, surrounded by Parktown North, Rosebank, Saxonwold, and Parkview. Parkwood, established in the early 1900’s, is one of the older, more established suburbs in Johannesburg, and obtained its name from its proximity to the Herman Eckstein Park (Zoo Lake Park), and the abundance of trees in the area.
Many of the original houses built in Parkwood in the 1920’s and 1930’s are still standing, and feature the architectural characteristics of a bygone era and ample gardens. Parkwood’s location and proximity to the main motorways of Oxford Road and Jan Smuts Avenue provide residents with easy access to the CBD’s of Johannesburg central and Sandton. Furthermore, the nearest Gautrain station at The Zone @ Rosebank is less than ten minutes away from the centre of Parkwood.
