Connected to other cities via Highways 11 and 16, Saskatoon is a wonderful place to call home and is comprised of over sixty neighborhoods divided into five areas. Among the most popular areas are the east side, west side and north side of the city.
The north side is, as the name suggests, the northernmost part of Saskatoon. There is a considerable amount of commercial development in the north side but the convenient access to highways in the area make travel to Saskatoon’s national parks and glistening lakes a breeze.

The north side encompasses Downtown Saskatoon and the popular neighborhood known as City Park. Other north side communities include the Central Business District, Kelsey Woodlawn, Lawson Heights, North Park, Richmond Heights, River Heights and Silverwood Heights.
