Lakeview is a primarily residential neighbourhood located in the southeast part of Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada. The majority of its residents live in low-density, single detached dwellings, with a sizeable minority of semi-detached or apartment-style multiple unit dwellings. As of 2011, the area is home to 7,732 residents. The neighbourhood is considered a high income area, with an average family income of $120,042, an average dwelling value of $277,070 and a home ownership rate of 71.0%.[1] According to MLS data, the average sale price of a home as of 2013 was $322,868.[2] It was the first community in Saskatoon to feature a man-made lake amenity.


The land where Lakeview now exists was annexed in the period between 1975 and 1979. It includes part of the Sutherland Moraine, a ridge that forms a local topographic high.[3] Home construction was at its peak from 1981 until 1985. Lakeview School officially opened on November 24, 1981, and St. Bernard School opened on April 2, 1982.[4] With exception of Taylor Street, McKercher and Stillwater Drives, the streets in Lakeview are named after Saskatchewan lakes.[5]
