Silverspring is home to around 5,000 people, the majority of whom reside in single-family houses built in the 1990s. The north portion of this region has several acres of the Saskatoon Natural Grasslands, which is uncultivated prairie grassland that has been conserved. Silverspring is also directly near to the Forestry Farm Park and Zoo, which is available to the public all year. The two primary roadways for commuting to and from Silverspring are Attridge Drive and Central Avenue. The Chief Mistawasis Bridge, located north of Silverspring, has improved access for surrounding residents and the rest of the city. Preston Crossing and University Heights Suburban Centre are the closest shopping and service centres. Mother Theresa School and Silverspring Public School are the two elementary schools serving students in grades kindergarten through eighth grade.
