Grosvenor Park

About this neighbourhood

Found in a prime location alongside 8th Street, Grosvenor Park is a great neighbourhood in the central district of Saskatoon with a very modest population of about 1,600 people. With the majority of homes built between 1946 and 1970, there is a fairly even split of both single-family homes and apartment-style condos, with an average home price of just over $403,000.

The land for the Grosvenor Park neighbourhood was annexed by the city between 1910 and 1919. According to a 1913 map of registered subdivisions, the neighbourhood was originally split into two sections called University View and Alexandra Park. By the 1950s, the design of residential neighbourhoods departed from the previous grid system of roadways. A more modern system of curving residential streets, feeding into collector roads that connected to arterial roads was implemented, and the size of the development was based upon the drawing area of an elementary school. The philosophy was to create smaller, more aesthetically pleasing neighbourhoods with fewer intersections and more controlled traffic flow. This was the first such neighbourhood designed with this idea in mind. The street names honour prominent early settlers of Nutana.

Grosvenor Park School opened in 1958 and was named after the subdivision as it was the first school in the area. Due to declining enrolment, the school was closed and in 1993, the building was purchased by the Muslim Community of Saskatoon. Today it is the Saskatoon Islamic Centre.

This neighbourhood is bounded by 14th Street to the north, 8th Street to the south, Cumberland Avenue to the west, and Preston Avenue to the east. Roads are laid out in a mix of crescents and avenues. Main Street is a minor arterial street in the south part of the neighbourhood, separating the single detached housing area to the north from the apartment buildings to the south.
