Grandview Heights is a residential neighbourhood in south west Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. It is built on land that had been owned in the 1880s by a family named McCauley.[6][7]

The neighbourhood is bounded on the north by the North Saskatchewan River valley, on the west by the Whitemud Creek Ravine and on the south and east by the University of Alberta farm. Road access to the neighbourhood is by 122 Street from the south and by Belgravia Road (after it turns into 122 Street) from the north. Despite a comparatively central location, Grandview Heights has no adjacent neighbourhoods, though it is geographically close to Lansdowne, Belgravia and Brookside.
