Welcome to the Avalon Area of Saskatoon
Avalon is primarily a residential neighbourhood with a high percentage of single-family detached homes and a small supply of apartments. The area's main commercial development is the Avalon Shopping Centre on the corner of Broadway Avenue and Cascade Street. The Stonegate Shopping Centre in nearby Stonebridge is also easy to reach and offers a major selection of retailers and services.
Most of this area was developed between the end of World War II and 1960 so the very typical rectangular bungalow is most popular and the mature feel of the neighbourhood gives it some charm. Residents are primarily middle-income families.
The neighbourhood is home to two elementary schools including John Lake School in the public system and Georges Vanier School in the catholic school system.
Residents enjoy nearly ten acres of public park space across three parks with amenities like baseball and basketball facilities, numerous playgrounds, walking paths and a paddling pool.
From this south-central location, you'll enjoy easy access to downtown Saskatoon and a number of popular Saskatoon golf courses are just a short drive away.
