Part of the allure of Newton Park, is its direct connection to Cape Road and the CBD. It’s the heart of the city, and being in the thick of things will make life much easier for P.E. settlers. The suburb is placed so that families can benefit from the bustle of Cape Road, whilst being withdrawn from it when quiet is needed. 

The suburb has great access to the beaches and the St. George’s Cricket Stadium, where you can catch local and international teams during cricket season.
