About this neighbourhood

Mayfair is a centrally-located neighbourhood on the west side of Saskatoon with a rich history dating back to as early as the late 1800s! Found alongside one of the city’s major artery roads, Idylwyld Drive, it offers many amenities, a population of about 3,000 people, and an affordable average home price of just over $203,000.

Mayfair started as a community outside of the villages of Riversdale, Nutana and Saskatoon and appeared as its place name on a map in 1907. In 1909 there were 60 residences built here, and in 1911, the City of Saskatoon had grown large enough to encompass this community.

Streets are laid out east and west, avenues are laid out running north and south. Streets increment in number as travel heads northward. Avenues increment alphabetically as travel proceeds west. The whole of the community is also laid out in a grid pattern.

Before the completion of the first stage of Mayfair School, pupils of the district were accommodated in temporary frame structures. The basement for the brick school here was completed in 1914. However, further progress on construction was not resumed until six years later. In January 1919, the Board realized that the use of the framed buildings would no longer meet the accommodation needs of this district. This first stage of the building structure provided ten classrooms.

In 1952 an addition of four classrooms and an auditorium was completed in 1952. Building plans for the 1958-59 school year provided for an addition of four classrooms at Mayfair School. It opened in September 1959.

This community is located adjacent to the Kelsey campus of Saskatchewan Polytechnic to the southeast.
