Kensington B (not to be confused with the other Kensington on the eastern side of Johannesburg) is one of the suburbs of Randburg , now part of greater Johannesburg .
The history of Randburg goes as far back as settlements by Boer pioneers in the 1850s and 1860s. The first farms were Klipfontein, Driefontein, Olievenhoutspoort, and Boskop. These four farms were then sub-divided among the sons of the early settlers. Driefontein, which was the original farm, extended from the northern boundary of Bryanston to the the present Braamfontein, which belonged to one JL Pretorius. In 1886 when he died, the farm was divided among his sons who later sold their portions. A portion of the farm was subsequently bought by the widow of Jacobus Brink of Pretoria. One of the first true Randburgers was her son Daniel Brink, who started farming on a portion of Driefontein in 1906. The portion was so large that it was later sub-divided into the suburbs of Kensington B, Beverley Gardens, Brian Brink and Vandia Grove. Randburg's first windmill - in Milner Street - was erected in 1924 by Daniel Brink and is still in the possession of one of Brink's descendants.
The Bryanston Country Club, an established recreational sporting and social facility, was founded in 1948. The club is located in one of Johannesburg's most vibrant areas, an area with a unique atmosphere rich with heritage and quality of life.
The Club's experience and styling capture the essence of Bryanston's relaxed yet elegant family lifestyle with club facilities that include a full service clubhouse complete with restaurants , function and event venues, which welcome members and guests into a world of personal attention and service.
Also to be enjoyed is the clubs esteem 18 hole golf course, swimming pool & lapa, bowling greens, squash and tennis courts.
Brightwater Commons (formerly the Randburg Waterfront), located in Ferndale, Randburg in the Gauteng province of South Africa, is one of Johannesburg's better-known entertainment, restaurant and shopping centres. Previously known as the Randburg Waterfront, it used to sport a large artificial lake around which all the shopfronts were built (mimicking the V&A Waterfront in Cape Town.)
The Brightwater Commons, most well-known for its wide selection of restaurants which offer a variety of cuisines, also hosts a large cinema complex, a mini-golf course, a laser-paintball arena as well as a broad selection of specialty stores. Currently the centre's anchor store is a large Pick-n-Pay supermarket, but the new Woolworths will balance the centre equally across the complexes opposite poles.
