River Heights

About this neighbourhood

As the name most certainly suggests, River Heights is a gorgeous neighbourhood found in Saskatoon’s highly desirable north end, bordered to the east by the South Saskatchewan River. It is home to a friendly and thriving community of about 4,500 people, with an average home price of just over $332,000.

Development of the neighbourhood began in the very early 1960s (it appears on the official 1961 City of Saskatoon street map, and by August 1967 only a small portion of the community had been developed, with full build-out completed by the early 1980s. Most of the neighbourhood's land was annexed by the city in the late 1950s, with the eastern third of the district annexed in 1974.

As a community name, River Heights predates the development by half a century, appearing on the May 1912 "Saskatoon and Environs" map that sketched out future development for the young city; at the time, the name was attached to a community in the current location of Montgomery Place.

Within the neighbourhood itself, the only commercial development is at or adjacent to the Canarama Shopping Centre strip mall, which was built in the late 1970s at the intersection of Assiniboine Drive and Warman Road. The community boundaries, however, abut the Mall at Lawson Heights and associated commercial to the north, commercial development off Circle Drive to the west and additional commercial on Pinehouse Drive to the north.
