About Fort Saskatchewan

Fort Saskatchewan is a historical city located 25 km (15 minutes) northeast of Edmonton. A small yet rapidly growing metropolis of 27,000 people, Fort Saskatchewan’s roots date back to 1875 when the North-West Mounted Police established a post along the banks of the North Saskatchewan River. Soon after, the fort was declared an essential northern police garrison, at which time it was renamed Fort Saskatchewan.

Fort Saskatchewan was first incorporated as a town in 1904, which it remained until after the Second World War. Residential development began to take shape in the 1950s, with the arrival of a multi-million-dollar nickel refinery, along with other industries cropping up in the area, saw the town’s population more than double.

Officially recognized as a city in 1985, Fort Saskatchewan has come a long way since its humble beginnings almost 150 years ago. Recently recognized as one of Canada’s Best Communities to live according to MacLean’s magazine, this thriving community boasts unparalleled city services, affordable real estate opportunities and a unique sense of small-town charm combined with big city convenience.

Fort Saskatchewan Neighbourhoods 

Fort Saskatchewan is divided into seven residential neighbourhoods and two industrial parks:


Bridgeview is an outdoor-friendly neighbourhood defined by the North Saskatchewan River to the west, downtown Fort Saskatchewan to the northeast and 99th Ave to the east. Of all neighbourhoods in the area, Bridgeview offers more park space than residential development, with over half the community attributed to Fort Centre Park.

Bridgeview consists predominantly of single-family homes built during the 1990s and early 2000s. Most homes in the area feature three bedrooms and bathrooms spread over 1,200+ square feet for $350,000.

Situated along the city’s eastern outskirts, Clover Park is a semi-rural community, offering expansive prairie views and plenty of room to grow.

Extremely low-density, Clover Park consists entirely of farm and acreage-style properties. Home styles in the area differ in size and price, ranging from renovated, single-family bungalows to expansive two-story homes offering ample square footage. However, homeowners living in this highly sought-after community are often reluctant to sell. As a result, real estate opportunities are less common than in other Fort Saskatchewan neighbourhoods.

While there are no commercial amenities located within Clover Park, the community sits less than 5-minutes’ drive from the Cornerstone Power Centre and the SouthPointe Shopping Centre. Both shopping districts feature a wealth of retailers and services, including grocers, a Wal-Mart, restaurants and more.
