A Saskatoon Neighbourhood
It’s a bright summer morning as I make my way east on Taylor Street towards the Saskatoon neighbourhood of Rosewood. As I get closer to my destination, the first thing I notice is the amount of lush green space on both sides of the road. When I turn into this new development, there are children playing in the baseball diamond to my left. Winding trails, native plants and wetlands lay just beyond the ball field.
There’s a lot of planning that goes into a new Saskatoon neighbourhood like Rosewood. Well before homeowners select their cabinetry and countertops, the City of Saskatoon is collaborating with private developers behind the scenes to create communities that aim to serve our booming population well.
