The neighbourhood is made up mostly of single detached homes, with one school, Grandview Heights Elementary and Junior High, an apartment complex, and a few businesses collected in the neighbourhood’s southeast corner. Scattered green spaces decorate the curvilinear streets and provide breathing space.
Prior to the early 1900s, the area that is now Grandview Heights was a land holding southwest of Edmonton, owned by the family of Matthew McCauley, Edmonton’s first mayor. In the early 1900s, the area was christened Grandview Heights, a reference to the views of the river and creek valleys at the neighbourhood’s north and west boundaries.
Grandview Heights was annexed by the City of Edmonton in 1913. A range of homes were built in the 1960s, from luxury estates on on spacious, well-landscaped lots, to smaller family homes on peaceful suburban streets.
With its peaceful yet central location, Grandview Heights attracts residents in many stages of life, from single professionals to young families to retirees.
Grandview Heights is close to shopping amenities and the University of Alberta, and nearby Whitemud Drive provides quick access to the rest of the city. When it comes to leisure, Grandview Heights has everything you need. The Whitemud Creek Ravine nature preserve and the river valley trail system are at your back door, with popular attractions like Fort Edmonton Park and the John Janzen Nature Centre just a stone’s throw away.
