About this neighbourhood

Fairhaven is a bustling Saskatoon neighbourhood located on the west side of the city with a population of about 5,200 people. Though it first appeared on city maps as early as 1913, most homes in the area weren't developed until the mid-1970s and 80s, and now have an average price of about $232,000.

Much of the neighbourhood is built on land originally owned by the Pendygrasse family. Sarah Shatwell Pendygrasse arrived from England in 1887 and was awarded a dominion land grant patent on December 12, 1892. Her son, Harold L. S. Pendygrasse, homesteaded a few miles away. At 1919 St. Henry Avenue, on the east bank of the South Saskatchewan River, the Pendygrasse Home, built by Harold Pendygrasse in 1910, has been declared a municipal heritage site. Pendygrasse Road, one of the community's main access roads, is named in the family's honour.

When Fairhaven first appeared on the maps, the street names all had one thing in common: they all started with the letter F. When the community was re-plotted in the mid-1970s, this was abandoned (except for Fairlight and Fairmont) and most other streets in the area were named for prominent city officials of the past, such as former city councillors S.E. Bushe, E.H. Crimp, G.A. Forrester, J.J. Olmstead, and James Priel. Some of the first developments in the community were commercial and office buildings near the junction of 22nd Street and Circle Drive, including the Union Centre, which for many years housed administrative and meeting facilities for local labour union organizations.
