Capital Park, one of Pretoria's oldest suburbs, is situated about 4 kilometres north of the historic Church Square. The Apies River flows on the west side of the neighbourhood and Witwatersberge on the south side. The homes here hark back to the 1950’s, although more modern renditions continue to pop up. The residents in the area are security conscious and there is a friendly community feel, at the moment the CPRTA (Capital Park Residents and Taxpayers Association) has taken over as the residents' association. Just below the suburb in the South is the National Zoological Garden, a favourite amongst residents. It’s a perfect place to picnic, walk the dog or spend time with friends and family and enjoy the extensive bird life. There are plenty of educational institutions in the area including; Langenhoven High School, Capital Park Primary School, General Jacque Pienaar Primary School and Tshwane University of Technology (TUT.) Capital Park is home to the world-renowned Rovos Rail luxury cruise train, which carries passengers in indulgent comfort to Cape Town, Dar es Salaam, Durban, or Victoria Falls. Several Afrikaans and English churches are also located in Capital Park.
