Edgemead enjoys a long and interesting history

Edgemead, city of gardens

Edgemead, founded in 1972,

is a Garden Cities development

Nestled between the Plattekloof Heritage site and Bothasig it’s a leafy suburb boasting a number of public open spaces.

It has both a primary and high school making it a popular choice for families. There are also many sporting clubs to choose from. Edgemead has a comprehensive library with a book of interest for everyone and a small shopping centre conveniently located in the centre of the suburb.

Garden Cities started planning for the shopping centre as early as 1974, with project architect Louis Karol – the same company that is now jointly responsible for the design of the Cape Town stadium for the 2010 Soccer World Cup.
