Grandview Heights Neighborhood

Grandview Heights is a fifty-year-old neighborhood on Wichita's Southeast side, with boundaries of Oliver south to Meadow Lane, west on Meadow Lane to Crestway, south on Crestway to Mt. Vernon, west on Mt. Vernon to Hillside, north on Hillside to Harry, and east on Harry to Oliver. Built on the site of previous orchards and horse farms, and once the site of a drive-in movie theater and a children's amusement park, the area has around 500 homes (in the $50,000 to $100,000 price range), the majority of which are single family dwellings, many still inhabited by their original owners, interspersed with a number of duplexes and fourplexes. The Neighborhood is the home of Wichita Independent Neighborhoods; Clapp Park, one of Wichita's most beautiful public golf courses; Griffith Elementary School; Georgetown Retirement Village; Mt. Vernon Presbyterian Church; and The Wichita Mall, the city's first indoor shopping mall built in 1970.

The Neighborhood includes the Krack, Grandview Heights, and Bartlett Plaza subdivisions and offers convenient access to Via Christi St. Joseph Medical Center, Boeing, and McConnell AFB. Within a mile of anywhere in the Neighborhood are over 35 businesses, including restaurants, groceries, auto repair shops, banks, flower shops, drug stores, a hardware store, a boarding kennel, and even a substance abuse rehabilitation facility.

The Neighborhood Association was formed in the summer of 1999 with the purpose of enhancing the livability of the area and providing an avenue of communications with government entities. Several members have been trained by the city's Neighborhood Patrol program. Newsletters are distributed by hand monthly to all homes.

Neighbors gather to discuss items of current interest, and sometimes share a meal, at the Grandview Heights Neighborhood Association's monthly meetings. The Association meets on the third Tuesday of each month at Mt. Vernon Presbyterian Church, 3700 E. Mt. Vernon at 7:00 pm. Its' Board of Directors meets the first Thursday of each month at the same facility at 7:00 pm. Anyone who lives, rents, owns property, or runs a business in the area is welcome to attend.

Public school district: USD 259
