Briarwood

About this neighbourhood

Found on the popular south-east side, Briarwood is a highly popular Saskatoon neighbourhood with a population of around 5,300 people. Considered a very high-income area, it is made up of mostly detached single-family homes with an average home price of just over $458,000.

The land where this neighbourhood now exists was originally farmland, owned by Mike Boychuk. He would become the owner of Boychuk Construction, a major Saskatoon homebuilder founded in 1945. Boychuk Drive, which forms the western boundary, bears his name. The land was annexed by the city in the period between 1975 and 1979. Home construction began in 1988, but reached its peak between 1996 and 2001.

Unlike most Saskatoon neighbourhoods, which name streets to honour noteworthy individuals or places, Briarwood's streets all begin with the letter "B". This makes this neighbourhood and the neighbourhood of Eastview somewhat unusual with their more generic street naming conventions.

The Saskatoon Public School Division and Greater Saskatoon Catholic School Division opted not to build schools in this community. Instead, students who live in the area are bused to either Wildwood or Lakeridge schools if they are enrolled in the Saskatoon Public School Division and to either Bishop Pocock or St. Luke schools if they are enrolled in the Greater Saskatoon Catholic School Division.

The Briarwood Community Association represents local interests in discussions with the city on quality of life-issues. To promote a sense of community, volunteers organize various events throughout the year, operate programs out of the Briarwood Recreation Centre and maintain the outdoor rink on the pond.
