PARKVIEW REAL ESTATE
Parkview is a beautiful neighbourhood featuring many mature trees and direct connections with the North Saskatchewan River Valley system. With a total area of approximately 155 hectares, it is one of the larger residential neighbourhoods in the city. Parkview’s homes are located on quiet streets, thanks to the neighbourhood's unique modified grid street network. Like many other neighbourhoods in the area, it offers breathtaking views of the scenic river valley.
The bulk of development occurred in the mid- to late 1950s. As such, the residential land use in Parkview is almost exclusively single-family homes, which account for 97 percent of homes in the neighbourhood. The only exception to this residential pattern is a small apartment-style building located in the centre of the neighbourhood, adjacent to the Valleyview Shopping Centre and Parkview Elementary and Junior High School.
One of the main features in Parkview is the Valleyview Shopping Centre located on 142nd Street. This shopping centre, containing five separate businesses, serves Parkview, as well as some of the nearby neighbourhoods. It is located in the heart of the neighbourhood and is readily accessible to residents. The neighbourhood is well located in terms of connections with major roadways in Edmonton, and residents can quickly access both Whitemud Drive and Stony Plain Road from 149th Street.
Parkview’s name represents the scenic views offered to residents of this neighbourhood. The portion of Parkview located to the east of 142nd Street was previously known as Valleyview, and the neighbourhood also incorporates a portion of the former Bueno Vista subdivision. All of these names reflect on the natural beauty of the area.
