Glenvista has a large Portuguese community and a distinctly cosmopolitan character. Glenvista is beautifully picturesque, peaceful and is surrounded by natural thorn bushes and veld. The area can be noted for its wildlife, which include meerkats and guinea fowl which still run wild. There are also various families of dassies in the area, continuously breeding and expanding, which live in the bushy and rocky surrounding veld and owls have also been sighted in the area.

The houses and properties in Glenvista can be large, and land value is high in the surrounding area. The neighbourhood is generally considered safe. It is situated close to a major shopping centre, The Glen. Alberton is located 5 kilometres to the East of Glenvista.

Glenvista Golf Course boasts 18 superb bent grass greens built to United States Golf Association standards. Five dams, four of which come into play on this course, and a perennial stream ensure that there is an abundance of water hazards on the course. About 400 indigenous trees have been planted recently.

Glenvista Country Club is set in a tranquil and very attractive part of suburban Johannesburg. It is a real delight to play, as it has a number of interesting holes. Dave Whitield, an institution at the club, has been resident professional at Glenvista for more than 15 years. An enthusiastic organiser of club competitions, he can always find a spot for visitors.
