Parkview is a community where everyone knows your name! 

Named for its close proximity to multiple parks, ravines and its breathtaking views of Edmonton’s vast river valley, the mature west-end residential neighbourhood is located about 10 minutes from downtown Edmonton. It is bound on the north by the MacKenzie Ravine, on the east by the North Saskatchewan River valley, on the west by 149th Street, and on the south by 87 Avenue and Buena Vista Road.

 

Developed in the mid-to-late 1950s, the majority of the original homes were single-detached bungalows. However, a few long-lost hundred year old farmhouses can still be found dotted in the neighbourhood.

First-time homebuyers often face a dilemma: buy a modest home with a tiny backyard in order to live close to downtown or invest in more square footage in suburbia but expect a lengthy commute. It’s the kind of compromise homeowners in Edmonton’s central oasis of Blatchford don’t need to worry about. The unique neighbourhood just northwest of downtown has it all: residential diversity, affordability, walkability and a village culture. 

Blatchford is putting down roots on the former site of Canada’s first licensed airfield - the Edmonton City Centre Airport - which closed in 2013. Developing such a large, urban parcel of land for a community of 30,000 people has been a dream for development manager Tom Lumsden.
