Greenside is a suburb of Johannesburg, South Africa. Greenside was initially a farm founded by the Geldenhuys brothers. Greenside's name is considered to be Scottish in origin, and refers to the adjacent Parkview Golf Course. Most of the roads in Greenside were named after golf courses or professional golfers. In particular, Leitch Road was named after the Scottish golfer Charlotte Cecilia Pitcairn Leitch.
Greenside has recently become a restaurant centre with about a dozen high-end restaurants, giving it a similar atmosphere to Parkhurst, Norwood and Melville. Greenside High School (Top Public School in Gauteng 2007) is situated in the suburb.
