Like many of the suburbs situated east of the N1, between Stormvoel Road and the N4 up to Silverton in Pretoria were established mainly to cater for residential homes for employees in the then South African Railway Services or as it is known today Transnet. Transnet is still a major source of household income to many of these residents and this will include the well-established suburb of Lindo Park.
The architecture of most of the homes in Lindo Park has captured a timeless era with red brick and large front porches being typical of the homes. Then the stands of these homes are known to be large and in many instances were known as burger stands, measuring in excess of 2000 m2. The suburb is a typical middle-class suburb which is evident in the pricing structure and the property usage is predominantly freestanding homes. These homes are also characterised by large living areas, large kitchens and bedrooms that are more than appealing in size. Due to the fact that the homes in the suburb were still under scrutiny and approval by municipal building inspectors, the craftsmanship was faultless and the homes were north facing.
The prime location of Lindo Park is obvious as stated with direct access to Stormvoel Road, the N1 north and south and a number of lesser roads connecting to all the commercial hubs in the greater Tshwane along with the many other industrial hubs like the greater Koedoespoort, Silverton, Silvertondale, Pretoria North and Rosslyn.
Being a well-established suburb means Lindo Park, residents have access to a number of popular schools such as Laerskool Lindo Park, Norridge Park Primary School, Hoerskool Silverton and Iona Convent.
There are a number of malls catering for retail and entertainment needs such as Queens Corner Shopping Centre, Zambezi Junction South Mall, Kolonnade Shopping Centre and Wonderboom Junction.
