An initiative and brainchild of the City of Saskatoon, Evergreen is one of the newest neighborhoods in the city but has already attracted a good number of residents and more are expected once development is complete. Once fully completed it is expected that Evergreen will be an urban village with a population of 12,000 people and the City of Saskatoon has also installed a LED street lighting system which is cost effective and more ecologically friendly.
The average home sale price for Evergreen is CAN $450,000.
