Tell us what you love about your Saskatoon neighbourhood

I’m feeling pretty good about completing the first phase of a project that I’ve wanted to get at for the past three years. It wasn’t a lack of enthusiasm for the project that kept me from completing the work before now, but rather, the scale of the work involved. At every given moment over the past few years the job just felt so overwhelming that I was often tempted to just forget about it. I’m glad I didn’t.

Over the past sixty days I have visited every school in Saskatoon, and I’ve walked every single park in every neighbourhood of our great community. It has been an excellent way to re-connect with the city that I grew up in, and that I love, but that was really a side benefit unrelated to my original reason for going. I went to take pictures. I went to capture these areas in images, hoping that they might be helpful to someone trying to choose a neighbourhood from afar in a city that they’re largely unfamiliar with.

Phase two of this project is a pretty major overhaul of our “Saskatoon neighbourhoods” pagesto include some of the best information available on every area of the city as well as a decent photo tour that gives the visitor a bit of a feel for the area. We’ve put a good dent in the work on most of the area pages, and a number of them are already complete. Over the next sixty days we will finish them all.

Our City Park pageprovides a pretty good idea of what we’re ultimately after for each Saskatoon neighbourhood if you’re interested in having a look.

Generally, I’m pretty happy with the way these are turning out but I can’t help think about how much better they could be with a little help from you. I can write about my impressions of an area, and even share some photos that provide a limited view of the neighbourhood, but nothing could be as helpful to a newcomer as the comments of someone who has lived in and experienced an area firsthand.

May I call on those of you who live in Saskatoon to share some of your thoughts on the neighbourhood that you live in? You can do that in the comments section of the page for your area. You’ll find your area on a list here. Feel free to tell us what you love about your neighbourhood, and don’t be shy about sharing something that you wish was different. No neighbourhood is perfect and all of your impressions have the potential to be helpful to someone.

Thank you for helping me with this project.
