Entertainment, Restaurants, Cafes
Because Evergreen is mostly a residential neighbourhood, there are few entertainment options within its boundaries. Residents can find activities outside of the neighbourhood to keep busy. The SaskTel Sports Centre, located south of the neighbourhood, is a stadium used primarily for soccer games. The centre has two outdoor, full-sized artificial turf fields; one indoor, full-sized artificial turf field; one indoor, mid-sized artificial turf field; one smooth floor court; three volleyball courts; four beach volleyball/soccer courts; a walking track; a circuit centre; a fitness centre; a full-service cafeteria; concession services; dressing rooms; a meeting room; and a large lobby/commons area. The Saskatoon Forestry Farm Park and Zoo, also located south of the neighbourhood, is a 100-year-old historic site with gardens, restored heritage buildings, a playground, and a zoo. Animals at the zoo include mammals like bears, foxes, deer, sheep, goats, and monkeys; reptiles like snakes, turtles, and lizards; birds like owls, kestrels, hawks, and turkeys; as well as frogs, insects, and fish. The zoo also has a children’s zoo, a train, a discovery centre, a gift shop, and a restaurant.
There are no restaurant options in Evergreen, but residents can find places to eat south of the neighbourhood. Pink Cadillacs Diner on Willowgrove Square features classic 1950s diner décor and a menu to match. Customers can get favourites like burgers, fries, sandwiches, hot dogs, milkshakes, malts, and floats. The restaurant is a fun outing for family and friends. Venice House Traditional Grill on Central Avenue offers standards such as pizza, pasta, sandwiches, salads, and soups. Meals are served in the comfortable dining area, or, for private parties, in the more elegant banquet room. Also on Central Avenue is Mirch Fine Indian Cuisine, which offers dine in, takeout, and delivery options for customers. The menu boasts colourful and flavourful dishes such as samosas, tikka, tandoori, kebabs, naan, curries, and paneer, as well as a buffet option. The large dining area is ideal for family gatherings or groups of friends.
