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.
