Welcome to Newton Park

Newton Park, originally named Fairview, is an upper-middle class suburb surrounding a business district providing an atmosphere of a CBD with a family friendly feeling.

With Cape Road running down the centre of Newton Park the suburb has seen a change over the last 10 years and rezoning of erven on the North-East side of Cape Road led to residential properties being sold and turned into business premises. This type of businesses includes office space and warehousing and are usually rezoned to Business 1-3.

Homes for sale in Newton Park vary greatly in price and size, from large homes to flats, apartments and town houses. The suburb consists of 72% full title properties (homes) and 28% sectional title properties (apartments/town houses) and various municipal parks including the Newton Park Aquatic Centre offering an indoor heated pool of international standard

There are number of schools in the vicinity, namely Newton Park Primary School, Herbert Hurd Primary School as well as Alexander Road High School.

Recently FNB (First National Bank) invested heavily into the area by building a 10 storey office building on Cape Road, showing confidence in the suburb as the next CBD in Port Elizabeth.
