How Do You Imagine Idylwyld? Online Survey Open for Public Input

The City invites residents to participate in the third phase of public engagement for Imagine Idylwyld, a planning, transportation, and design initiative to improve the function, safety, and connectivity along Idylwyld Drive between 20th and 25th Street East.

Using community input and technical analysis, a few design options for the corridor have been developed to improve Idylwyld Drive and help link the surrounding neighbhourhoods and business districts, while making it easier for people to get around the City Centre.

Starting Friday, June 9, to Friday, June 23, 2017, the public is invited to provide feedback on which of the options best meets their needs. Have your say in the following ways:

Citizen Patrol

Citizen Patrol Volunteers take on an active role in the community. They provide a positive visible presence in their neighborhoods and serve as a deterrent to criminal activity. By joining together, they show they care about each other and about what happens in their neighborhood. People that live in a community have firsthand knowledge of of the area and its challenges and are a great aid as "Eyes & Ears" for police. Saskatoon Police members provide them with the skills needed to be able to report and document suspicious activity accurately.

Citizen Patrol Volunteers

Become a Citizen Patrol volunteer. It takes a positive attitude, enjoying fresh air and exercise, and becoming acquainted with the neighbors by walking, riding a bike, jogging or driving around the neighborhood. Volunteers work in teams, are identifiable by their vests, and carry a flashlight and cell phone.

Citizen Patrol Volunteers patrol parks, schoolyards, strip malls, and residential areas in their community. They invest as much spare time as they have to offer, one hour at a time, or more. Join today and teach our future generations the value of community and the responsibility we all have in creating or maintaining a community in which we want our children to raise our future generations in. If you want more info email us.

Caswell Dog Park

A one acre temporary neighbourhood Dog Park, located next to the Mayfair pool between Avenue F and Avenue G and 31st and 32nd Street, began in the spring 2014. This Dog Park is fenced, manicured and provides pick up bags as part of the two year trial period. For more information about this and other dog parks visit the City of Saskatoon Dog Parks webpage. To provide feedback and for survey information on the Dog Park, visit Shaping Saskatoon Dog Parks webpage.

New Mural in Ashworth Holmes Park

The mural on MayFaid Lawn Bowling Club in Ashworth Holmes Park, featured above in the header, is by local artist Josh Jacobson. Enabled by a grant from the City of Saskatoon applied for by the Caswell Community Association, it was installed to replace the mural on the back of the Mayfair Lawn Bowling Club that was defaced beyond repair last year. Josh has several eye-catching murals up around the city (including one of 33rd St. next to the Owl & Crate), and his colourful depiction of the four life-stages of a butterfly is a beautiful addition to Ashworth Holmes Park.

Special thanks to the City of Saskatoon for donating the cost and labour of cleaning and priming the wall, and to everyone who attended the skating party at Caswell School last winter from which some of the funds raised went to purchasing a special protective coating for the mural which should protect it for many years to come!

Saskatoon belongs to you - have your say! Shaping Saskatoon is a way for you to find out about ongoing City of Saskatoon Projects, join in on topical Discussions, and take Surveys that will help shape Saskatoon’s future. The more public input received, the better it can become.

Temporary Artwork Installation on 33rd St

The Urban Design Placemaker Program installed a temporary artwork in the Mayfair Neighborhood at 33rd street and Ave. C. Harvest Collector is a public artwork by local artist Leslie Potter. It has been exhibited since 2010 in the Farmers Market area. The initiative to relocate this art responds to the requests from public consultations in 2013 to have art on 33rd Street. As well, 33rd Street is identified in the City Wide Urban Design Program for streetscape improvements.


The artist description of the work represents his vision for the art. "The gentle and colourful nature of this sculpture creates many variations: a big hay rake, a sheaf of wheat or perhaps a kind of vessel that gathers food."


A plaque with title of the artwork, name of the artist and artist statement has been made and will be installed shortly.


Harvest Collector was installed October 3, 2014, and will be in the new location for a few years. The Placemaker Program's temporary art collection is reviewed by the Visual Arts Placement Jury annually.
