These communities lie between Taylor Street to the north and South Circle Drive (Highway 16/11) to the south, between Clarence Ave and North Circle Drive to the east.
East of Clarence are the neighbourhoods of Churchill (north of Ruth) with its traditional grid pattern, and Adelaide Park (south of Ruth) with its curved streets. These areas became part of the city of Saskatoon in the 1910s and were developed in the 1950s and 1960s,
Nutana Suburban Centre was developed in the 1960s and 1970s, though the area experienced early development during the early 1900s Hub City Boom. As Saskatoons's first "suburban centre," city planners combined residential, offices, recreation, schools, and commercial areas into one community. West of Preston is the neighbourhood of Nutana Park, built around the Harold Tatler Park which has 5 baseball diamonds and two athletic fields connected by recreational pathways.
Eastview was annexed by the city over the 1950s and most development occurred over the 1960s, when the community was on the city's eastern edge. Most of the street names in Eastview begin with "East".
