Bloubosrand is a suburb northwest of Johannesburg, South Africa. It is located in Region A of the City of Johannesburg Metropolitan Municipality.[2]


Located midway between the Fourways and Northgate shopping malls, the suburb has excellent access to schools such as Fourways HIgh School, the British International College, North Riding High School and Cooper College.

There are several creches in the area, including Montessori and Pet's Christian Academy.


The area is patrolled by a dedicated vehicle from SysControl and several other security companies including ADT and NIghtGuard are also active in the area.

There is also a volunteer neighbourhood watch which is aligned to both the security companies, Douglasdale SAPS and Douglasdale CPF.


In the last year, the community has got together to form a residents association, the tenets of which are based on care and assistance for each other. Several WhatsApp groups are in operation to share information and create a platform for helping each other. Whether it's charity drives to help local people in need, the odd joke, or the sharing of contact details for local service providers - it's happening all the time in this busy suburb!
