Edenvale is a town on the East Rand in Gauteng, South Africa. It started out in 1903, after the Anglo Boer War as a small settlement named Rietfontein which sprung up around the Rietfontein Gold Mine. It was made a municipality in 1942. It was initially populated by Cornish mineworkers. Modern Edenvale has become a very well known part of Greater Johannesburg. It lies about halfway between the O.R. Tambo International Airport and the Johannesburg city centre and is located 12km by road from Sandton and about 9km from the closest Gautrain station. This makes it a very comfortable spot to live in as it is quite close to all the major parts of Johannesburg. Today,Edenvalehas become a very well knownpart of Johannesburg. This makes it a very comfortable spot to live and visit as it is quite close to all the major parts of Johannesburg and a range of fantastic activities. Edenvale is a very quiet town which ranges from the middle class areas such as Eastleigh and Croyden to the upper class areas such as Dowerglen and Edenglen. Edenvale boasts the atmosphere of a peaceful town and one often forgets just how close it is to the city and all the bustling routes. Therefore, many places of interest are not in Edenvale but are close enough to take a drive to and are well worth the effort. These places include Gillooly's Farm, Horwood's Farm and numerous large shopping malls such as Eastgate and the East Rand Shopping Mall which is just minutes away. Edenvale boasts a tranquility that many enjoy when wishing to escape the hustle and bustle of city life. There is a beautiful and undulating Linksfield Golf Club here as well as many superb areas which offer a range of sporting and recreation facilities. Edenvale affords one the opportunity to sit back and relax whilst enjoying the tranquil surroundings. Even when you become tired of relaxing, it is just minutes away from all superb amenities and entertainment facilities. br
In 1995, after the local government elections, Edenvale was amalgamated with some surrounding areas, including Modderfontein, Rabie Ridge Extensions 4 and 5, Chloorkop and the western part of Tembisa to form the Lethabong municipality, as part of the short-lived transitional Khayalami Metropolitan Council, which also included Midrand and Kempton Park/Tembisa. This arrangement ended in 2000, and Edenvale is now part of the Ekurhuleni Metropolitan Municipality, which includes much of the East Rand, while Modderfontein and Rabie Ridge became part of the City of Johannesburg Metropolitan Municipality. Even though Lethabong is defunct, it is still found on some maps, including Google Maps, with the area marked as "Lethabong (Ekurhuleni)".
In the recent five to six years the area to the north of Edenvale (Modderfontein) has expanded significantly. Two malls have been erected, Greenstone and Stoneridge mall, as well as an array of complexes and townhouses, in an area now called Greenstone Hill and Greenstone Park, just above Illiondale.
