Mountview - Winston Heights was established as early as 1932. But it wasn't until the 1950s that the area was truly developed. It is bordered to the north by 32 Avenue and Trans-Canada Highway to the south. Deerfoot Trail is to the east and Edmonton Trail is to the west.
The area is located on the west escarpment of Nose Creek Valley, which means Nose Creek Park is just nearby. This gives its residents convenience of space for bonding and recreational activities. Golf enthusiasts will enjoy having options with Fox Hollow Golf Course, Elks Golf Club, and The Winston Golf Club.
The neighbourhood is served by two public schools: Mount View Elementary and Georges P. Vanier Bilingual Junior High. The community association also has its own facilities with meeting rooms and a main function hall for events.
