Silverwood Heights is a large residential neighbourhood on the north side of Saskatoon. In the late 1970s and into the early 1980s, Saskatoon had seen a boom in the residential construction sector. Silverwood Heights was the then desirable neighbourhood for young families. Most of the neighbourhood development happened in the early 1980s.


Silverwood Heights was named after an ambitious livestock dealer, Alexander Silverwood. He set up a large barn to house cattle and horses in the early 1900s. Alexander found a natural water spring on his land and set up a water bottling plant and sold it to the community. At that time, Saskatoon did not have a water filtration system and with Typhoid Fever being rampant in the area, he supplied the only safe drinking water to the community. By 1914 the city built its own water filtration plant. In August 1951, the livestock barn was struck by lightning and destroyed. Remnants of the old barn foundation can be found at the end of Adilman Drive.


In this neighbourhood you can enjoy a round of golf at the par 3 Silverwood Golf Course, walk down by the river, make use of the Lawson Civic Centre and so much more. You will find most of your retail needs can be met at the Mall at Lawson Heights and the surrounding strip malls.
