PLEASANTVIEW

The portion of Pleasantview east of 106th Street has been a part of Edmonton since 1914; the remaining portion had to wait until the end of World War II before becoming part of the city. As partial repayment of a debt owed for overseas service, prairie farmland that is now western Pleasantview was subdivided into generous one-half to full acre lots and sold under the Veteran’s Land Act to returning veterans.

Just south of the city boundary in 1946, and therefore considered a rural area, Pleasantview nonetheless reflected contemporary subdivision design features. Curvilinear streets are arranged in a modified grid pattern with a central park site.

Annexation to Edmonton in 1948 gradually relieved the problems of deficient educational, religious and park facilities. Today Pleasantview has a variety of other land uses, including a cemetery located in Caine Memorial Park at the centre of the neighbourhood. A strong commercial element exists along Calgary Trail South and at the corner of 51 Avenue and 111 Street. Southgate Mall and the future Southgate LRT Station are located immediately south of the neighbourhood. A unique feature of this neighbourhood is its topography. Most of Edmonton, with the exception of the river valley and ravines, has little relief. By contrast, Pleasantview contains one of south Edmonton’s most noticeable elevations, a hill from which the view is pleasant.

Until 1950 the neighbourhood was known as Martin Estate, named after David Martin who was an early pioneer who settled in the area in 1899. After the neighbourhood’s urban subdivision in the mid-1900s, the area was re-named in honour of the view achieved from its notable topographical feature.
