Area

The geographic borders of Caswell Hill are 33rd St W to the north and 22nd St on the south; to the east is Idylwyld Drive N, while Avenue H North runs along the west border.

Neighbourhood

Streets in Caswell Hill are lined with gracefully arching elm trees and stately pines. Through the seasons, the neighbourhood is alive with colour provided by lush greenery and blooms in the spring and summer, rich gold and russet of falling leaves in autumn, or sparkling white hoarfrost in winter. For two weeks in late spring, Ashworth Holmes Park is resplendent with purple lilacs.

Caswell's vibrant residential areas include affordable housing, quaint established streets, modern homes, and historic properties.

History

Located on the west side of Saskatoon, Caswell Hill, originally named the Ashworth-Holmes subdivision, was put on the real estate market September 1, 1905. Its boundaries were originally between Avenue A North and Avenue E North, between 22nd Street West and 28th Street West, but as a result of the rapid population influx, and more specifically, the development of the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway, it was later expanded to 32nd Street West. The Caswell Hill area was named after one of the first settlers that arrived with the Temperance Colonists. Robert Caswell arrived in Nutana with the Temperance Colonists from Moose Jaw in 1883.

In the summer of 1907, Caswell Hill's population began to grow. One of those that decided to reside in the area was Colonel Herbert Acheson. Colonel Acheson was a prominent resident of the community, serving as Saskatoon's City Solicitor. Still existing today, the Colonel's residence is located at 502 Walmer Road. Through the continuing migration of people to Saskatoon, Caswell Hill rapidly expanded. By 1912, Caswell Hill had become a popular place of residence.

Caswell School: Built on the Original Homestead Site

Caswell Hill School, located at 204 30th Street West, is believed to be on the original site of Robert Caswell's homestead. Built in 1910, the school's design was strongly influenced by the British. The two-storey brick school still remains today and continues to provide education to the children of the Caswell Hill neighbourhood.

The school celebrated its centennial in 2010.

Mayfair Pool

The site of Mayfair Pool has undergone many changes through its history including an early school, football grounds, and the current pool built in 1959. Mayfair Pool celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2009. In the summer of 2012, a new pool was constructed to replace the old one.

Ashworth Holmes Park

Ashworth Holmes Park is among the oldest neighbourhood parks in Saskatoon. The land was donated to the city by John Ashworth and J.H. Holmes in 1907 to be made into a park. In 1912, U. Morell, a prestigious landscaping architect from Minneapolis, developed an overall park plan for the city which included further developement of Ashworth Holmes Park, including many of the features seen in the park today.
