It features gently rolling tree lined streets, excellent public schools and a strong spirit of community amongst its inhabitants. Valleyview’s location on the valley floor between the river and the hillside means that it has rich alluvial soil and warm weather which makes it ideal for growing anything from flowers to vegetables to fruit in their gardens.
