Edenvale in the Johannesburg Region of Gauteng, South Africa
Edenvale is situiated in the East Rand region in the Gauteng province of South Africa. Edenvale started out in 1903 as a small settlement named Rietfontein which sprung up around the Rietfontein Gold Mine. Edenvale lies about halfway between the O.R. Tambo International Airport and the Johannesburg city centre. Edenvale is a quiet town which ranges from the middle class areas such as Eastleigh to the upper class areas such as Dowerglen or Bedfordview.

In 1995, after the local government elections, Edenvale was amalgamated with some surrounding areas, including Modderfontein, and part of Tembisa to form the Lethabong municipality. This arrangement ended in 2000, and Edenvale is now part of the Ekurhuleni Metropolitan Municipality, which includes much of the East Rand.

Edenvale is situated close to 2 major highways and the O R Tambo International Airport is only about 15 minutes away making it feel very central. Edenvale has the atmosphere of a peaceful town and one often forgets just how close it is to the city and all the bustling routes.
