History

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.[2]

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.[3] College Park School was opened in 1966.[4]

Government and politics

College Park exists within the federal electoral district of Saskatoon—Humboldt. It is currently represented by Brad Trost of the Conservative Party of Canada, first elected in 2004 and re-elected in 2006.

Provincially, the area is within the constituency of Saskatoon Sutherland. It is currently represented by Joceline Schriemer of the Saskatchewan Party, first elected in 2007.
