City of Opportunity
Centurion sign

Centurion, with its refreshing climate, is one of the fastest growing urban areas in the country and this growth rate will in all probability be maintained. The city developed from a "sleeping town" for Pretoria and Johannesburg to a sought after residential area with excellent infrastructure, growing industrial areas and human-friendly city centre around a man-made lake. The area combines the amenities of a city with a country atmosphere.

Map of Gauteng with Centurion

It is centrally situated in Gauteng, the industrial, business and administrative heartland of South Africa. Two freeways, the Ben Schoeman Highway and the Danie Joubert Highway, as well as the freeway between Pretoria, Kempton Park and the Johannesburg International Airport facilitate links with other centres around Centurion. Alternative links with Pretoria, Johannesburg and the East and West Rand are also available.

Centurion's metamorphosis started with the development of a city centre around a man-made lake. The first phase (Centurion Boulevard) was opened in 1985. It consists of shops, commercial, office, recreational and housing developments.

The total shopping area covered 103 square metres, of which 62 500 square metres consisted of retail space. It has since been expanded substantively. The musical fountain in the lake is unique in the area and attracts visitors and residents who want to relax during or after shopping excursions or visits to cinemas and restaurants in the centre. The amphitheatre is used regularly for music concerts and other festivals.

Highveld Techno Park, a techno park in which high level technological research and development is done, is situated just south of the Danie Joubert Highway opposite Centurion Centre. The area consists of 25 plots with an average size of 4,4 hectares and houses, amongst others, Telkom's data centre.

Several good quality Afrikaans and English schools as well as churches from a variety of denominations are found in Centurion. Centurion College and Centurion Akademie 2000 provide tertiary education and universities such as Unisa and the University of Pretoria are within easy reach while numerous private institutions provide training within Centurion.

Centurion is world famous for the beautiful cricket stadium with international test status. Supersport Centurion is die head quarters of the Northern Titans and Northerns Cricket, and it has a unique atmosphere due to its beautiful location and extensive grass banks, which provides seating for thousands of spectators. The city also boasts facilities for most other sports and the local rugby team is a force to be reckoned with in the Carlton League.
