Nutana Park

About this neighbourhood

Also known as South Nutana Park, Nutana Park is a popular residential neighbourhood in south-central Saskatoon with a population of about 2,900 people. Well-located with Preston Avenue to the east and Circle Drive to the south, it is a popular suburban destination for families, with an average home price of over $346,000.

Most of the land for the Nutana Park neighbourhood was annexed by the city between 1910 and 1919, with the remaining southern piece annexed between 1960 and 1969. According to a 1913 map of registered subdivisions, the name "Nutana Park" was one of many developments in the area, the rest of which went unbuilt. Home building began in the area after World War II, with the greatest activity between 1961 and 1970. The majority of residential units are single-family detached houses, with a small number of semi-detached and apartment units.

The area was once served by two elementary schools under the Saskatoon Public Schools. Prince Philip School began construction in 1959 and opened in 1960. Another public elementary school, Lorne Haselton School, opened in 1961 but closed in 1985 and was later occupied (1988) by the Saskatchewan Abilities Council.

St. James Elementary School served the neighbourhood until 2005 when it was closed due to declining enrolment. One notable alumnus of the school is Mike Babcock, former NHL head coach of the Toronto Maple Leafs. After St. James' closure, the francophone École canadienne-française Pavillon Gustave-Dubois took over the building; it is Saskatoon's only francophone high school. Extensive renovations to the building were completed in 2008.

This neighbourhood is bounded by Adelaide Street to the north, Circle Drive to the south, Cumberland Avenue to the west, and Preston Avenue to the east. Roads are a mix of local and collector roads. Construction of an interchange at Preston and Circle, in the planning since the 1960s, was completed in the fall of 2013.
