Saskatoon’s Newest Neighbourhoods – Kensington

As Saskatoon continues to grow and expand with an influx of people, so do it’s boundaries.   Kensington is one of Saskatoon’s newest neighbourhoods on the west side of the city.  It’s located west of the Confederation Park and Pacific Heights neighbourhoods and north of 22nd street.  It is the first neighbourhood to be developed in the Blairmore Sector and the City of Saskatoon describes it as being ‘designed to be an attractive walkable neighbourhood allowing residents convenient access to schools, services, recreation, and transit’.

Kensington has a projected population of 8,299 people and will have a neighbourhood density of 7.2 persons per acre.  The estimated number of units is 3,994 with 1,680 being single family and 1,714 allotted to multi-unit dwellings.  The total number of parks will be just over 6% of the total gross developable area.

Besides parks and greenspace, the City has allocated space for 2 future elementary schools within it’s Core Park.  There has also been an area set aside for commercial retail/restaurant space in the south.
