Parkview Community Overview

Parkview is a residential neighbourhood in west Edmonton, Alberta, Canada overlooking the North Saskatchewan River valley. The neighbourhood is informally split into two smaller neighborhoods, with the portion east of 142 Street called Valleyview and the portion west of 142 Street called Parkview. There is a small strip shopping centre, Valleyview Shopping Centre, located near the centre of the neighbourhood on the Parkview side of 142 Street.

Edmonton's Valley Zoo, a family oriented petting zoo, is located in the river valley to the south east of the neighbourhood with access provided by Buena Vista Road. Buena Vista Road also provides access to Laurier Park, a good place for families to go for picnics, and Buena Vista Park. Both parks are part of the city's river vallye park system. A foot bridge, located in the river valley to the east of the neighbourhood provides access to Hawrelak Park on the south side.

Whitemud Drive, with access from 149 Street, provides residents with good access to destinations on the south side, including: the University of Alberta, Old Strathcona, Whyte Avenue, Southgate Centre, and Fort Edmonton Park. Travel west along 87 Avenue takes residents to West Edmonton Mall. Residents also enjoy good access to the downtown core.

Parkview is bounded on the north by the McKenzie Ravine, on the east by the North Saskatchewan River valley, on the west by 149 Street, and on the south by 87 Avenue and Buena Vista Road.

There are two schools in the neighbourhood. Parkview Elementary Junior High School is operated by the Edmonton Public School System. St. Rose Junior High School is operated by the Edmonton Catholic School System.
