This family oriented area was initially developed through the 1970’s and into the early 1980’s. Lawson Heights is now fully mature so beautiful landscapes and large trees are everywhere.
The area’s eastern border is defined by Whiteswan Drive, which overlooks Meewasin Park and the South Saskatchewan River valley. If you enjoy a bike ride, cross country skiing or an after dinner stroll you’ll enjoy over 20 kilometers of paved trails that run through the park, along our stunning river valley, extending well beyond downtown Saskatoon.
The neighbourhood’s north end location has a bit of an “off the beaten path” feel to it, but you’ll be amazed at how central it really is. Warman Road provides easy access to the downtown core (approximately 4 km) and Circle Drive will take you to the far east side, or the far west in just a matter of minutes. Those working or studying at the University of Saskatchewan can enjoy a short and scenic drive to work via Whiteswan Drive and Spadina Crescent. This peaceful and relaxing drive provides spectacular views through all four seasons.
Shopping opportunities are nearly unlimited starting with The Mall at Lawson Heights, one of Saskatoon’s major shopping centres. Again, downtown Saskatoon is just a quick jaunt, as is Preston Crossing and Circle Drive West where you’ll find such retailers as Staples, Rona Home Centre and Home Depot. Safeway and Extra Foods are also conveniently located on the western border of the area.
Lawson Heights also offers some beautiful green spaces with over 20 acres of public park area including Rochdale Park, Umea Park and Bishop James Mahoney Park. Creative playgrounds, a public paddling pool, and ball diamonds are just a few of the amenities that you’ll find in these lovely parks. Other recreational amenities include the Henk Ruys Soccer Centre and the Lawson Heights Civic Centre, home to an indoor wave and swimming pool and a public library.
Lawson Heights offers a public elementary school, a Catholic elementary school and a Catholic high school. Public high school students attend Marion M Graham Collegiate, which is on the southern boundary of neighbouring Silverwood Heights, and an easy walk from most Lawson Heights locations. All of the schools in this terrific area have excellent reputations in the education community.
The community is supported by a strong and vibrant Lawson Heights Community Association, which offers a number of recreational programs in the spring and fall.
