If my facts don't convince you, here are some of the factors that might influence your decision to choose this locality over the others.
When moving to a city that you are not familiar with, having public transit in close proximity can be a blessing. The route to your work or University can be figured out with utmost ease; once that part is done you can start exploring the city. The City park locality has two bus routes (12 & 14) that connect it to various parts of the city. Hence it is a perfect locality for students and new immigrants with family.
Schools and University
A number of elementary schools, colleges and the University of Saskatchewan have direct access to this locality. It is always beneficial to have the kid's school within your locality. This might seem more appealing to working parents as dropping off and picking up your kids from school becomes easier.
Students will also prefer staying at a location that is close to the University as they can stay off-campus by paying lower rent and also save the transportation time and cost.
