Evergreen is a residential neighborhood under construction within the University Heights Suburban Development Area of Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. The residential area is constructed around the village centre and a larger district village. The subdivision was created in 2010. Evergreen is projected to have a density of 8.6 units per acre, becoming one of the densest neighborhoods in Saskatoon when complete.
The Evergreen neighborhood is planned to be built out in seven phases; once complete it is expected to:
- 655 acres (including 42.12 acres of park land);
- 12,622 projected population;
- 5,712 units (2,021 single family units and 3,691 units).
The neighborhood is named for two standard of Scots Pine that were 50-year-old and incorporated into the layout of the neighborhood. These trees were originally part of the Sutherland Forest Nursery Station.
As is standard in most recently developed Saskatoon communities, street names consist of assorted named recognizing Saskatoon citizens, with main core roads using the name of the community.
The first residential lots were offered for sale by the City of Saskatoon in 2010.

At of July 2015, no schools exist in Evergreen. The nearest secondary schools are Centennial Collegiate (public) and St. Joseph's (separate) in the University Heights Suburban Centre to the south. The closest elementary schools are Silverspring (public) and Mother Teresa (separate) in the adjacent Silverspring neighbourhood and Dr. John G. Egnatoff in the Erindale neighbourhood. Currently transportation is being provided to any of these three schools by both school divisions.
On October 22, 2013, the provincial government announced funding for new schools in Saskatoon, including a joint-use public/separate school in Evergreen. Greater Saskatoon Catholic Schools revealed on June 23, 2015 that the division's new elementary school in Evergreen will be named St. Nicholas and is expected to be complete by 2017.
At present, Evergreen is too young a community to have any substantial commercial development.
