Welcome to the Nutana Area of Saskatoon
Nutana is primarily a residential neighbourhood located in central Saskatoon. It's longest border runs along the east bank of the South Saskatchewan River directly across from River Landing and the Central Business District, otherwise known as downtown Saskatoon.
Established in 1883 as the first permanent settlement of the Temperance Colonization Society, Nutana forms the foundation of Saskatoon's development. Several treasures from this era remain including Trounce House, Saskatoon's oldest residence, and the Marr Residence, the oldest house in Saskatoon that still remains in its original location. Saskatoon's first school was built in the area in 1888 and relocated to the University of Saskatchewan campus in 1911. You may know it today as "The Little Stone Schoolhouse”.
Nearly forty percent of the development that you see in Nutana today occurred before 1945. Clearly, those who chose to make this area home had some wealth, evidenced by an abundance of large and beautiful character homes particularly towards the west end of the area. Still today, Nutana tends to attract high-income earners and that's reflected in the cost of real estate in the area.
Nutana continues to be cherished as a wonderful jewel of Saskatoon. From the beautiful views in Rotary Park to the unique shops and services of the Broadway Business District, you're sure to find something here that will make it a special place for you.
Nutana is home to École Victoria School, an elementary French Immersion school in the public system, and a public high school, Nutana Collegiate. The University of Saskatchewan campus is located just outside of the area in neighbouring Varsity View.
The area offers more than forty acres of public park space. Recreational amenities included basketball, tennis, cross country ski trails, walking paths, picnic and barbecue facilities, numerous playgrounds and a civic paddling pool.
