Silverwood Heights

About this neighbourhood

Undoubtedly one of Saskatoon’s largest and most popular neighbourhoods, Silverwood Heights is an established suburban subdivision with a population of about 10,600 people. Found in the beautiful north-central corner, it is prized for its idyllic location with the South Saskatchewan River to the east and Golf Course to the north. The current average home price is just over $408,000.

The land that is now occupied by Silverwood Heights was originally owned by several parties. They included an 1891 grant to the Temperance Colonization Society, who established the first permanent settlement in the Saskatoon area (Nutana); a farmer from Great Britain, John Malcolm Mark, who obtained land for a homestead in 1900; and Cleeve W. Taylor, another homesteader.

William Alexander "Billy" Silverwood arrived in Saskatoon from Ontario in about 1907 and bought land two miles (3 km) north of the city limits. A livestock dealer by occupation, he built a large barn on his land (known as the Silver Springs Farm) to house his horses and cattle. By 1911, he opened the Silverwood Springs bottling plant, using spring water found on his farm. Saskatoon did not yet have a safe drinking water supply, and deaths caused by typhoid fever from contaminated well water were common. Until the city completed its filtration system, Silverwood's bottled water was a popular commodity.

The H. McIvor Weir Wastewater Treatment Plant was constructed in the neighbourhood in 1971. The majority of homes were constructed between 1981 and 1985, with a few hundred more being built in the decade before and after that period.

Street names were chosen for this neighbourhood for the most part to honor Saskatoon business pioneers and notable educators. In 1996, the stretch of Warman Road on the western edge of the neighbourhood was renamed Wanuskewin Road.
