Boulevard Gardens Program
Boulevard Gardens are City of Saskatoon owned spaces beside local streets that are planted and maintained by residents. Boulevard Gardens can grow food, build community, add beauty to neighbourhoods, provide habitat, and help manage storm water. Please familiarize yourself with the Guidelines provided on growing Boulevard Gardens, including where gardens are permitted, what approvals are required, what types of gardens are allowed, and the expectations for maintenance. Following these Guidelines will ensure you follow all City of Saskatoon bylaws.
We thank all gardeners who participated in the Centre Median Garden Pilot however no additional applications are being accepted.
What is a Boulevard and Centre Median Garden?
Boulevards are public, City-owned spaces between the sidewalk and street curb that are planted and maintained by residents.
Centre medians are public, City-owned green spaces located between the two roads. Gardening on centre medians is not permitted, except for those holding an existing centre median garden pilot agreement with the City.
Boulevard gardens can grow food add beauty to neighbourhoods, provide habitat, and help manage storm water.
For your own and others’ safety, please Call Before You Dig (1-866-828-4888) to confirm the location of underground utilities before getting started.
The City of Saskatoon and utility providers may require occasional access to the boulevard to maintain underground utilities, build or repair sidewalks, install street signage, access hydrants, or prune street trees. This could mean that plants or other garden features may be removed or damaged.
