The Jukskei River forms the northern border of Lonehill. Do you know where it rises? You will be surprised!
Some experts argue that the Jukskei rises in Harrison Street in downtown Johannesburg, where the Witwatersrand reaches its high point and separates the rivers running eastwards (like the Jukskei) and westwards. Think Civic Centre; Park Station; Johannesburg City Hall – all in Harrison Street. It begins as “rainwater run-off” and then meets the “Jukskei Eye”, a spring at Ellis Park.
Other specialists say that the Jukskei begins at Ellis Park! The original spring was on the former Doornfontein farm and produced 18,000 litres per hour! The spring has since disappeared.
