Tucked away, just east of Saskatoon’s the downtown core and mere steps away from the South Saskatchewan River sits one of city’s most adored communities — City Park. With an eclectic mix of old meets new, the neighborhood has welcomed three new businesses in the area. So what inspired Ryde YXE, Ready Set Baby Boutique and The Griffin Takeaway to venture into City Park?
City Park feels like home. The combination of residential living and neighbouring downtown core was the perfect mix for the hustle and community Ryde offers. Our business is built on passion, positivity, and a love for everything local. We are always looking for ways to grow and build our community of givers and really be a part of Saskatoon — not just live in it. The creation of Ryde YXE City Park is an extension of our plan to create the life we want to live. Our whole Ryde community is made up of some of the most incredible people and we are excited to watch that grow! We invite everyone to our new City Park location, experience our entire fleet of brand new custom bikes and remember your first Ryde is free or you can purchase a new Ryder 3 for $25.

Ready Set Baby Boutique
We have been welcomed into City Park’s busy community with open arms. Our desire to be a part of this unique area stemmed from wanting to be more centralized and accessible in Saskatoon. Having been in business for 6.5 years we truly love what we do. Helping customers and new parents navigate all the options in baby products, we are able to help them make informed choices that meet their families’ needs. We are excited to offer many services in our new location, including baby equipment rentals and parenting classes. As always our staff strives to provide a welcoming environment and an all-encompassing wonderful experience, as we truly believe our customers are our biggest asset.

The Griffin Takeaway
City Park’s community, lifestyle and vibe were really the driving force behind moving our 8th Street bakery and lunch stop to its new home. We have really enjoyed getting well acquainted with curious new customers visiting us for the first time as well, seeing the familiar faces of those who have supported us from the beginning. While our menu has changed to include some new options, customers can still expect their 100 per cent gluten-free favourites and a large selection of vegetarian and vegan snacks and sweet treats. Our items are always made fresh and our wonderful staff would be happy to answer any questions about our menu. Make sure to visit us in our new location. To eat in or take out, for special orders and catering requests, please call 306.933.3385. —Owners, Nicole & Derek Barr
