There are plenty of places in the city you can find Saskatoon condos for sale, but few as vibrant and wonderful as Evergreen. Created in 2010 in the northeast area of Saskatoon, Evergreen is a beautiful neighborhood that harkens back to more community-focused trends in urban development. Evergreen takes its name from the 50-year-old Scot pine trees that were already in the area, originally part of the Sutherland Forestry Nursery Station. The trees were incorporated into the layout of the community, brilliantly using the existing trees to build character and retain a green piece of this Saskatoon Neighborhoods.
Growing families will love Evergreen, with so many schools nearby and more being planned. In terms of high schools, Centennial Collegiate and St. Joseph’s are right next door in University Heights. And for elementary schools, Silverspring, Mother Teresa, and Dr. John G. Egnatoff are nearby, with a new school, St. Nicholas set to open in 2017. And of course, the University of Saskatchewan is a short jaunt away for those grown kids taking on adulthood.
Evergreen is a bit of an island unto itself; instead of being surrounded by other neighbourhoods, it surrounded by parks and fields, including the use of greenbelts provided by the U of S and the Forestry Farm. The residential area itself is constructed around the village centre, which serves to give you a real sense of community, where you can rely less on a car and more on walking through the community. As a bit of side trivia, Evergreen is also a first Saskatoon neighbourhood to use LED street lights.
On the weekend, there’s so much to do! You’re a hop, skip, and a jump away from The Forestry Farm Park and Zoo, The Alice Turner Branch of the Library, Northeast Meewasin Trail, and the ice rink at ACT Arena. There are also tennis courts and a skateboard area at Forest Park, as well as other nearby parks like Ernest Lindner and John Avant (which houses the beautiful Erindale Lake). And with the proposed North Bridge Roadway, even more of the city will open up in the years to come.
Whether you need groceries, frozen yogurt, or you want to shop til’ you drop, Erindale is close to many retail centres, like the Erindale Centre, Central Avenue Business District, and Preston Crossing Shopping Centre. From chains like McDonald’s and Sobeys or Pier One and Future Shop, to more eclectic clothing and furniture stores, you don’t need to venture too far to find what you’re looking for.
A life of family. A life of leisure. A life of comfort and community. It’s all in Evergreen. Discover a beautiful Saskatoon Townhouse today at evergreentownhouses.ca.
