Rietondale is situated in the area known as the Moot, north of central Pretoria. It is bordered by Meintjieskop to the south, Skurweberg or Vlakkopies to the north, the Government Experimental Farm to the east and Kieser Street to the west. The valley of Rietondale was once a vlei towards the western boundary. A beautiful stream bordered by white sand is remembered by Mrs. Nora Boschoff, and it is from this that Riviera, after the French Riviera, west of Rietondale was named. Mrs. Nora [nee. Morrison] Boschoff whose father Mr.John William Morrison owned and developed much of Rietondale, until recently resided in the area and lived in the original stone house built by her father, ‘Kia Ora’, 186 Van Der Merwe Street. The Rietondale area has a strong sense of community with generations returning to live in the unique ‘urban village’ setting.
