Today, Sutherland is bounded by Circle Drive on the west, by Attridge Drive on the north, by Central Avenue on the east and by College Drive on the south. It’s one of just a few Saskatoon neighbourhoods, which enjoy the closest possible proximity to the University of Saskatchewan campus. College Drive provides easy access to the downtown Saskatoon core and the "big box" retail centre known as Preston Crossing is just a short drive away.
Sutherland is primarily a residential neighbourhood. All of its commercial property is organized along Central Avenue giving the area a bit of a small town "Main Street" kind of feel. The area’s close proximity to the university campus makes it quite popular for students who are renting. Consequently, well over half of the dwellings within Sutherland are apartments, duplexes, row houses, and mobile homes. Most of the rental stock is located north of 115th Street, while the homes on streets east of that line are mostly single-family dwellings.
Sutherland is home to two elementary schools. Public school students from kindergarten to grade eight attend Sutherland School while Bishop Filevich Ukrainian Bilingual School provides instruction in both English and Ukrainian within the catholic school system. Students who do not wish to study Ukrainian attend Saint Volodymyr School in neighbouring Forest Grove.
Sutherland offers eight small but pretty parks. Between them, area residents have access to baseball, basketball, soccer and volleyball facilities. There’s also a paddling pool, numerous playgrounds, a toboggan hill and walking paths.
