Riverside Shopping Centre

Corner 317 Bryanston Drive and The River Road, Bryanston, Sandton, Greater Johannesburg, South Africa.

Covid-19 Closure, 27 March 2020 - Present

During the national State of Disaster declared by the President, most non-liquor shops are open, but might have restrictions. We suggest that you telephone or email to find out if a business is open (numbers below).

Riverside Shopping Centre is one of the original village shopping centres of Bryanston, Sandton.  Located on the edge of Bryanston, entrance on The River Road next to busy Bryanston Drive just south of Cambridge Road, this lovely little centre serves a large area of eastern Bryanston and western Rivonia.  In mid-2014 it caught the dreaded Sandton Shopping Centre Disease, "Refurbishment".  As at end September 2015, most of the renovations were complete and most shops had moved back in.  As of March 2017, the centre is now fully occupied, as listed below.

GPS Coordinates of main entrance: -26.05892, 28.04660.

Parking: There are open-air parking bays and some undercover parking under the Shell garage.  All are free of charge. If the undercover parking is full, you can drive through to (but not, officially, return from!) more parking at the back, with an exit onto Cambridge Road.

Trading Hours: Mainly Monday to Friday: 09:00 – 17:00 and Saturday: 09:00 – 13:00.  Some shops open for longer hours, Sundays and Public Holidays.
