History – The land on which Erindale now sits was annexed over three decades: 1950 to 1959, 1970 to 1979, and 1980 to 1984. The majority of residential construction was done between 1986 and 2001, with a small amount of construction before this. The housing stock is composed mostly of low density, single detached houses. Roadways feature the names of local artists of some fame. Father Robinson School was built starting in 1989, and opened in the fall of 1992.
Education – Dr. John G. Egnatoff School – public elementary, part of the Saskatoon Public School Division. Named in honour of Dr. John Egnatoff, a former teacher, principal and university professor.
Father Robinson School – separate (Catholic) elementary, part of Greater Saskatoon Catholic Schools.
Parks and Recreation – Don Ross Park (0.5 acres)
John Avant Park (21.2 acres)
Ernest Lindner Park (13.2 acres) – features a fully accessible playground for disabled children.
The Erindale/Arbor Creek Community Association organizes events and activities for its residents. Programs operate out of Father Robinson, and Dr. John G. Egnatoff Schools as well as neighbourhood parks. The Association also plays an important role in representing the interests of residents in key community issues such as schools and parks.
Commercial – Because of the adjacent University Heights Suburban Centre, there is almost no commercial development in Erindale. There is only one commercial building – a Mac’s convenience store on the corner of Kenderdine Road and Kerr Road. 52 home-based businesses exist in the area.
