Parkridge is a neighbourhood in the southwest side of Saskatoon. This neighbourhood, formerly known as Fairhaven II, began building in the early 1980s. The final phase of Parkridge construction began in the early 2010s, with the establishment of the Blairmore Suburban Centre. There are two elementary schools in the neighbourhood: James L. Alexander School and St. Marguerite School. The closest high schools are Tommy Douglas Collegiate and Bethlehem Catholic High School, both of which are located in Blairmore and are linked by the Shaw Centre. The Shaw Centre is one of Saskatoon’s recreational centres, including world-class swimming and diving facilities, a waterslide and kiddie pool, a walking track, a fitness centre, and other amenities. Residents of Parkridge have various alternatives for services and facilities in the Blairmore Suburban Centre, including Walmart, Lowes, and Shoppers Drug Mart, as well as other smaller strip malls and convenience stores located inside the region. Parkridge Centre has 240 long-term care individuals ranging in age from infants to the elderly. Highway 7 provides easy access out of town, while 22nd Street and Circle Drive provide direct access around and through the city.
