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, though the "College Park" name wasn't applied until the late 1960s. As late as 1965 the community was being promoted by homebuilders under the name East Greystone (after the adjacent Greystone Heights).
