Parkhurst, the perfect place to put down roots

The trendy hub that is Parkhurst is laden with coffee shops, antique stores, décor boutiques and restaurants, making it the perfect spot to meet with friends, hold informal business meetings or just take in the picturesque surroundings.

Known for its beautiful houses and streets lined with trees, the Parkhurst area, and 4th Avenue, in particular, have plenty to offer its residents.

In the early 1900s, Parkhurst was registered as Joburg’s 67th suburb, making it one of the oldest. Today, the narrow streets offer residents and visitors an upmarket vibe coupled with remodelled village appeal. In the evenings, people can be seen strolling past restaurants sipping on coffee, or enjoying an early dinner on their way back from Verity Park with their dogs.

This suburb is known for its tight-knit community and village-like atmosphere. The neighbourhood is a friendly space where residents are able to enjoy evening walks, and because of the vibrant 4th Avenue, they can walk to dinner instead of driving.

Parkhurst’s 4th Avenue is a popular go-to place for Joburgers and is a definite tourist location. The street is lined with a number of restaurants and hang-out spots, with The Jolly Roger and Espresso being two of the longest-standing establishments.

Over the years, establishments such as Rockets, Hudsons Burgers, Craft, and Nice, have become favourites.
Parkhurst is also well known for its style, with exterior or interior designers. The craft shops and antique outlets boast some exquisite products for sale, or simply to feast your eyes on.

It is constantly evolving and finds a way to stay relevant and refreshing for visitors from both near and far.
Parkhurst is also home to Beaconsfield Bowling Club, for those who enjoy some good lawn bowling. This is a great venue for enjoying the outdoors and socialising with friends while at the same time getting some exercise in the process.

If you want to explore your creative side, the Seedpod Studio is just for you. This studio went from being a small ceramics studio to being an established studio that offers crafts such as decoupage, ceramics, mixed media and mosaics. You can go alone or with your family and friends.


Parkhurst is only set to get better as time goes by. There is always something to do, and being situated so centrally, Parkhurst is the perfect place to put down roots!
