Grandview Heights Edmonton Real Estate
Laid-back and surrounded by green sceneries, the sprawling Grandview Heights was owned by the McCauley Family in the 1880s. It took a while before this Edmonton neighborhood became a thriving residential development. It was in 1913 when Grandview Heights officially became part of Edmonton, but it wasn’t until the early 1960s when private dwellings increased rapidly in the area.
The name Grandview Heights fits the place quite perfectly. It truly offers splendid views, especially from the north and west borders where river and creek valleys can easily be seen. Grandview Heights has a favorable location. On the north, it is bounded by the North Saskatchewan River Valley, while the Whitemud Creek Ravine sits on the western boundary. On the south and east, it is bounded by the expansive University of Alberta Farm.
Today, Grandview Heights still exudes a little bit of that 1960s charm. The current plans of subdivision still dates from that time. A considerable number of houses here have that 1960s “executive” style. Most of the homes are single-unit and almost all of them are owner-occupied.

Since Grandview Heights is bounded by parkland, it’s a great place for outdoor activities, such as cycling and roller-blading. Even in the winter, one can never run out of outdoor diversions. You can cross country ski on the West 240—or if sledding is more your thing, you can waste hours at the toboggan hill at Whitemud Park.
Most of the recreational and commercial facilities can be found in the southwestern portion of the neighborhood. There is one school run by the Edmonton Public School System—the Grandview Heights Elementary and Junior High School, which is adjacent to a spacious playground and park. There are also four outdoor tennis courts for the use of community league members—and a rink where residents can skate and play hockey during winter.
