Auckland Park at the turn of the century was considered to be "in the country" relative to the city. It was here that many of the gentry would spend their weekends - apart from country houses there was a hotel, a boating lake (where the Country Club is today) and a horse racing track (where the University of Johannesburg is).

Auckland Park was laid out in 1888 and developed by a New Zealander, John Landau, who saw in the area great similarities to his home town Auckland, hence the name. The names of the streets were all related to places along the Thames - Richmond, Twickenham, Ditton, Wargrave, Kingston, Finsbury, Surbiton, Hampton, Fulham, Henley, etc.

A number of early Johannesburg "names" built houses here, Julius Jeppe built four, one for himself, one each for his daughter and son and one for his butler.

Today Auckland Park is a true mix of nationalities and cultures and its inhabitants enjoy a vibrant lifestyle.
