  • Early Bonnie Doon residents recognized right from the start what a beautiful part of the city they were in. They built the first houses next to Mill Creek Ravine overlooking the stunning Saskatchewan river valley. Of course, the neighbourhood has expanded south and east over the years, especially after world war two, with residential development typical of the time.
