The Buena Vista Saskatoon neighbourhood in 1906 was within the city boundaries at the time of Saskatoon’s incorporation. The area to the west of Lorne Avenue was marketed by 3 Saskatoon realtors: W.H. Coy, A. MacDougall as well as F.E. Guppy. All 3 eventually had roads named after them; Coy Ave. is still around. In 1910 house lots in the area were being marketed for $275.

Buena Vista Park, created in 1911-1912, was developed by U. Morell, a noted landscape architect from Minneapolis. According to a 1913 map of registered communities, the shore section along the South Saskatchewan river was initially called the Monroe Addition. Most of property construction was done prior to 1946, with a smaller amount built up to the 1960’s. After a several years of little building and construction, infill housing began from 1996 to present day.

An important component of the area is Buena Vista School, an elementary school in the Saskatoon Public School System. It was made in the Collegiate Gothic design by Scottish designer David Webster, that had actually previously developed several similar-looking institutions (King George, King Edward, Albert, Westmount, Caswell and also Alexandra). The foundation was laid by school board secretary W.P. Bate on June 9, 1913 as well as the very first rooms opened on April 1, 1914.
