About this neighbourhood

Located in the heart of south-central Saskatoon, Avalon is a mature neighbourhood with deep roots in the city's rich history. Home to over 3,300 residents, Avalon's development was mostly completed in the 1960s, with some additional homes added in the 1990s. However, with the rising popularity of infill properties, several modern renovations and designs can be found here, as well, though the average home price remains quite reasonable at just over $360,000.

Most of the land for the neighbourhood was annexed by the city between 1910 and 1919, with the remaining southern piece annexed between 1960 and 1969. Home construction did not begin until after World War II. The layout of the streets reflects the changing urban planning philosophies of the day when the land was developed. The north part of the neighbourhood follows a traditional grid pattern. By the 1950s, the design of residential neighbourhoods used a modern system of curving residential streets, feeding into collector roads that connected to arterial roads. Thus, the southern part of the neighbourhood follows this design practice. Many of the community's street names honour mayors and other community leaders from early in Saskatoon's history, including Wilson Crescent, commemorating James Robert Wilson, who was the Town of Saskatoon's first mayor and the City of Saskatoon's second.

Residential build-out in Avalon was mostly completed by the late 1960s. Some additional residential development occurred south of Glasgow Street and west of Clarence Avenue in the mid-1990s, along with some limited remnant development west of Melrose Avenue in the 1980s. Plans for the southwest extension of Circle Drive initially caused some concern; construction of an interchange at Clarence Avenue and Circle was completed by the late 2000s, facilitating resident access to the freeway and to the Stonebridge commercial area to the southeast.
