Parkview as a neighborhood grew with the establishment of Wheeling Park in the early 20th century. Parkview is almost entirely a residential area, however, there are a few scattered businesses. The far northeast extent of Parkview includes Wheeling Park High School, the only public high school in the Ohio County School District.
The neighborhood is directly next to Wheeling Park and its entertainment opportunities include swimming, ice skating, golfing, and walking. It is located very close to the businesses and amenities of Elm Grove, as well as all of the businesses along National Road. Parkview is a great commuting location because it is just minutes away from the intersections of I-470, I-70, and Route 40 (National Road).
