The suburb of Wierda Park in Centurion West originated in the 1970s. This era in the residential building industry was characterised by the division of urban smallholdings or plots into lovely large suburban stands of on average between 1,000m2 and 1,500m2 in size.

Today, Wierda Park is one of the few middle-income suburbs in this area still offering sizable conventional family homes on large freestanding erven with established wooded gardens and lots of extra features like pools, granny flats, staff accommodation and the like.

In addition to breathing space and wide tree-lined streets, the suburb boasts a great location for residents working in the greater Centurion area as well as commuters to and from other areas. Wierda Park is situated minutes away from the N1 and N14 intersection, giving motorists quick and easy access to the cities of Pretoria and Joburg as well as the West Rand and Northwest Province.
