We have created a community for older adults and have built on a property on the edge of Saskatoon’s revitalized cultural core that meets our goal of locating within walking or biking distance of most of our needs. A charming bike and pedestrian trail runs the length of 17th Street and connects with the riverside trail system. The residents have actively participated in the planning with the goal to create an old-fashioned neighbourhood that supports friendly cooperation, socializing, mutual support and environmental responsibility. We currently have two units as yet unsold. Individuals or couples interested in our project are invited to contact us.
Community location is placed at the center of the zip/postal code, city/state, or city/country (not based on street addresses)
