South-west of Saskatoon lies Montgomery Place, a lovely residential neighbourhood that was founded in 1946, when veterans of World War II, and later the Korean War, returned and settled with their families. As part of the Veteran’s Land Act settlement plan, the veterans transformed it into a nice community that is perfectly suited for families, and a real gem for real estate in Saskatoon.
The Charm of Montgomery Place
Montgomery Place pays homage to the veterans’ bravery as many of the streets are named after famous battles and soldiers. Initially, the land was divided into about half-acre parcels, which have since been subdivided to make way for the building of modern facilities and homes. The charm of this area, however, still remains and is evident in the neighbourhood’s relaxed and friendly atmosphere. Anyone who knew Montgomery Place years before will find that very little has changed today.
Despite the fact that the area’s population is less than 3,000 people, Montgomery Place has two elementary schools and one church. For recreation, this neighbourhood offers four parks spread over more than 15 acres. There is much to offer anyone looking to get out and enjoy the great outdoors, every season of the year. Montgomery Place boasts a paddling pool, toboggan hill and outdoor skating rinks for winter fun.
