King George is a mature neighbourhood with largely single-family homes established before the 1960s, and some even before World War II. Residents here enjoy the views and activities given by the wide 38-acre Victoria Park, which is located on the west bank of the South Saskatchewan River. The Riversdale public swimming pool, located at the park’s southern edge, is often a big hit during the hot summer months. There’s also the Lion’s Skate Park, a boat house and launch, the Riverside Badminton and Tennis Club, and the Riverside Lawn Bowling League to watch or join. This neighbourhood is home to three churches: Riversdale Neighbours Church, St. Georges Anglican Church, and Spanish Church. Elementary students attend the beautiful and recently refurbished King George Community Public School, which was founded in 1912. Saskatoon City Transit provides bus service across the area, taking you directly to downtown for shopping and services. The Saskatoon Farmers Market, Midtown Plaza, and even the Broadway District situated over the Broadway Bridge are all within walking distance and provide a diverse range of experiences and food.
