Posted by Kent Braaten on Tuesday, May 5th, 2020 at 12:00pm.

Whether you are moving to the Saskatoon area for work or are simply looking for a change, you may find yourself searching for surrounding communities, rather than homes for sale in the city itself. While some prefer the shorter commute and extensive access to amenities and entertainment that city living can provide, others may prefer the quiet of a smaller town. Thankfully, there are a number of towns surrounding Saskatoon to choose from—and I’m not talking about just Warman or Martensville, which we already know and love. I'm talking about the many other amazing ones you may not have already heard of!

Here are just a few of the Saskatoon surrounding towns to consider when searching for your next home:

Dalmeny

Dalmeny is a thriving young community located just over 30 kilometers north of Saskatoon. First settled in the early 19th century, the town is now home to just under 2000 residents according to the last census and is quite a popular commuter town, just a 15-minute drive from the city!

While it may not be in the city, you certainly won’t feel without in this wonderful, little town! Its abundance of amenities include two schools teaching from pre-kindergarten all the way to grade 12, several local businesses, churches, and a newly-built arena.

Aberdeen

About 40 kilometres northeast of the city, you’ll find the quiet and serene community of Aberdeen, settled along the railway lines just east of Warman. While its initial people-puller was its bustling wheat business, it is now a popular choice for farmers and non-farmers alike!

You can even find a curling rink and bowling alley, so your weekends will never be without activity!
