Landmarks on Park Street are The Pretoria Art Museum in its Mid-Century Modernist building, The Gerard Moerdyk Restaurant which serves traditional colonial African fare in a house built in 1920 by this famous architect, as well as Loftus Versfeld Stadium where local and international rugby and soccer matches are played.
