Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada: Part II

Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada

Part II

If you haven't already, please check out the first part of this two part series:
[Part I]

Part II of my tour of Saskatoon, SK further explores the areas of Downtown, Broadway District (Nutana), and the riverbank. Following that is a sampling of some of the character housing in City Park and Nutana, and a brief glimpse at the University of Saskatchewan.

The tour concludes in Riversdale, centred on the 20th Street commercial district. One of the city's founding neighbourhoods, it has long been the infamous and forgotten part of town - Saskatoon's answer to "skid row". In recent years, the area has begun a remarkable revitalization with new businesses, new development, and a lot of buzz. Great potential lies within Riversdale, and it appears destined to once again become a thriving district in the city.

This is the final instalment of my efforts to showcase Saskatoon to you this summer. This has been a fun project for me, and I appreciate all the positive feedback that I've received already.

Thanks for viewing, and welcome to Saskatoon!

And fantastic job, as usual, Echoes!

Awesome, Echoes! You've gone and done it! The best tour of this town I've ever seen. It's enough to get Europeans, Africans and anyone else moving here, before they know what hits them in November! Ha ha.

It's all so dreamy....

Thanks so much, Echoes, for taking the time to tour Saskatoon and take such splendid, rich photos of our city. What a fantastic journey around the city! It's served as a great reminder to me of the many architectural gems that we still have here. You do have a way of capturing the spirit of a place. Cheers!

Thanks everyone!

I have a few more photos from the University of Saskatchewan campus to add. These are new student residences and the first buildings constructed as part of "College Quarter", a long-term mixed-use development being spearheaded by the university:
