Arborfield (2006 Population 329) is a town in east-central Saskatchewan, Canada, approximately 70 km northeast of Melfort. The town is located on Highway #23 nine miles west of the Pasquia Hills. Arborfield is only 35 minutes from Nipawin or Tisdale, or 2½ hours from Saskatoon or 2 hours from Prince Albert.

History[edit]

In 1910, the town requested that it be named Fairfield, but that name was rejected by the post office in Ottawa. Because the offer was received on Arbor Day, the Post Office asked if the residents would accept Arborfield, which it did. As well, the town may have been named for Arborfield, England, the site of an engineering museum.
