College Park is a primarily residential neighbourhood located in the east-central part of Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada. The majority of its residents live in single-family detached dwellings, with a sizable minority of high-density, multiple-unit dwellings. As of 2007, the area is home to 5,255 residents. The neighbourhood is considered a middle-income area, with an average family income of $58,945, an average dwelling value of $207,993 and a home ownership rate of 53.7%.
Before being part of Saskatoon, the land for College Park was used for agriculture. George Stephenson, who ranched in the Dundurn area in the 1880s, operated a dairy farm in along 8th Street until 1911. The intersection of 8th Street and Central Avenue (now Acadia Drive) was referred to as "Stephenson's Corner" for many years. The streetcar line from Saskatoon to Sutherland ran east down 8th Street and turned north into Sutherland.
The land where College Park now exists was annexed in the period between 1955 and 1959. Home construction was at its peak from 1961 until 1980. Many streets are named after Canadian universities and professors. College Park School was opened in 1966.
