Saskatoon Neighbourhood – River Heights
River Heights is a neighbourhood in Lawson Suburban Development Area in Saskatoon. Its eastern boundary borders the South Saskatchewan River. The suburb is just south of the Mall at Lawson Heights. Development of the neighbourhood began in the very early 1960s (it appears on the official 1961 City of Saskatoon street map, though an issue involving restrictions on mortgage funds delayed its initial development, and by August 1967 only a small portion of the community had been developed with full build out completed by the early 1980s. Most of the neighbourhood’s land was annexed by the city in the late 1950s, with the eastern third of the district annexed in 1974.

Education – École River Heights School – public, French immersion elementary, part of the Saskatoon Public School Division, St. Anne School – separate (Catholic) elementary, part of Greater Saskatoon Catholic Schools.
Commercial – Within River Heights itself, the only commercial development is at or adjacent to the Canarama Shopping Centre strip mall, which was built in the late 1970s at the intersection of Assiniboine Drive and Warman Road. The community boundaries, however, abut the Mall at Lawson Heights and associated commercial to the north, commercial development off Circle Drive to the west and additional commercial on Pinehouse Drive, also to the north of River Heights.
