Click here to explore Kensington and watch a 3 minute video about Saskatoon's newest neighbourhood in Blairmore.

Much more than a collection of homes, Saskatoon’s newest neighbourhood will be a vibrant community to call home. With an inviting village square, picturesque ponds, parks and space for local shops, this is a neighbourhood where people can live, play and work. Designed to connect seamlessly to nearby communities, this environmentally-sustainable urban village will enrich the lives of its new residents.

Connect

Park the car - you’ll rarely need it here. With an extensive network of pedestrian and bicycle routes and linked parks, getting around this neighbourhood is a piece of cake.

Hold a barbecue at the picturesque village square. Located in the heart of the community, this beautifully landscaped one-acre square is the perfect meeting spot.

Play and relax in one of the numerous neighbourhood parks. The core park is in the centre of the neighbourhood and is designed to host everything from a quiet stroll to a lively game of soccer.

Sustain

Kensington has been designed with the environment in mind. More than half the single-family homes are oriented to take advantage of solar energy use.

Grow

You can always call Kensington home, even when your housing requirements change. There are condominiums, townhouses, single-family homes on cul-de-sacs or traditional lots with rear lanes and second-story apartments located above a coffee shop or office in the village square.
