Emmarentia Dam / Johannesburg Botanical Garden (Louw Geldenhuys and Olifants Roads, Emmarentia). Probably the top spot to go running, with various well marked, paved tracks. The botanical garden scenery is magnificent, the area is big enough to test the most ardent fitness nut, and there are usually plenty of people - just avoid the less populated areas. Parking is available inside the park, and there are car guards on duty. Only downside: it is out in the west, perhaps a little out of reach of the major hotels.
