Places Of Interest In Newton Park, Port Elizabeth

(Article by Caitlin W)
Port Elizabeth is fabled for its wind, restaurants, surf and sun. The city’s vibe is far from frenetic, but remains fresh with the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University providing a young atmosphere. 

The suburbs are packed with accommodation for visitors, and real estate options for those looking to take up a permanent position in the friendliest city in the Eastern Cape. 

Real estate in Newton Park is hot right now - there are several reasons for that: the suburb has good schools, quality shops, great restaurants and pubs and much more. So what motivation is there for finding a place to rent or buy in one of the Friendly City’s best suburbs? 

Let’s find out! Here are some places of interest in Newton Park, Port Elizabeth.

Newton Park contains many great places to eat out, geared towards family friendly fun and even a more mature outlook. The Silver Cloud Spur caters for your families flame-grilled needs, while The Blinking Owl will slap a beer in your hand with a friendly smile. 

5. Easy Access

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 The suburb is placed so that families can benefit from the bustle of Cape Road, whilst being withdrawn from it when quiet is needed.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. 
6. Aquatic Centre

The Newton Park Indoor Aquatic Centre hosts plenty of meets throughout the year. It features a heated 50 metre swimming pool area. For galas or fun outings, it’s another great benefit of living in Newton Park. 

And if these reasons aren’t sufficient, immerse yourself in the friendly vibe of the city itself. Port Elizabeth – and Newton Park in particular – is the place to be in the Eastern Cape. Make the move today!
