Hillview is located in Mill Woods, immediately to the north of the Grey Nuns Community Hospital. The neighbourhood is bounded by major roadways while interior streets follow curved and keyhole patterns. A number of strategically placed walkways through Hillview make for convenient walking or cycling from place to place. The neighbourhood focus of Hillview is its two elementary schools and park sites. The existing residential development is a mix of one unit dwellings, row housing and walk-up apartments.
